Gothenburg Museum of Art
The exhibition Towards another world. 25 years of Swedish contemporary art – Sten A Olsson’s Culture Scholarships celebrates the power of art to conceive and create other worlds.
In a curated selection of Stena Foundation culture scholars from the past twenty-five years, the exhibition mirrors a dynamic period in Swedish art, with many layers of meaning. The presentation comprises both older works and newly produced art in a variety of media and artistic expressions. Paintings, sculptures, textiles, moving images and site-specific installations create a complex whole, which gives equal priority to both the art historical overview and the individual development of each artist.
The exhibition is divided into three sections. Each of the three rooms aims to gather works that can be considered to reflect different attitudes towards art, and which share a visual or thematic kinship.
Participating artists: Katarina Andersson, Lotta Antonsson, Jonas Dahlberg, Nathalie Djurberg/Hans Berg, Andreas Eriksson, Jens Fänge, Hilda Hellström, Henrik Håkansson, Axel Karlsson Rixon, Kent Lindfors, Jenny Magnusson, Mandana Moghaddam, Ida-Lovisa Rudolfsson and Jörgen Svensson.
Curator: Magnus af Petersens
The retrospective Towards another world is part of the 25th anniversary of the Stena Foundation.
