Moderna Museet (the Stockholm Museum of Modern Art) exhibition series Den 1:a på Moderna (The First at the Modern) has been underway since 2004 and invited in a unbelievable group of contemporary art. Now it’s time for the last exhibit and the artist is the American concept king Joseph Kosuth, who has produced a new installation specifically for Moderna Musseet.
The gallery at Urban Outfitters now features the exhibit Dear Nike. Photographer Martin Vallin examines the relation between photography and the muse in a project where he spent eight months working with the model Nike Felldin. The entire project has developed into a mutual game, taking as much inspiration from 80s punk as from Frank Stella.
The National Museum’s theme this summer is queer. With a new perspective on its collection, the museum is showing an exhibit on desire, power, identity, and sexuality. It features Karl XII wearing a dress and holding hands with his sister, nymphs, and well-defined athletes.
With the exhibition A State Of Content, Operatingplace presents an extraordinary slice from the Scandinavian art scene. Nearly fifteen artists collaborate in a collective exhibition which can be found way up top at PUB.03.
The big discussion from last year’s Venice Biennale can be seen at Kulturehuset’s Gallery 3. Last Riot, a work by a group of Russian artists, is a three-part video projection which portrays a dark future dystopia filled with expressionless youth.
