Urban Outfitters is playing host to an exhibition of the work of Swedish fashion genius Lovisa Burfitt. In an installation prepared in conjunction with photographer Julia Hetta, Burfitt shows accessories previously seen in the French and Italian editions of Vogue.
Tensta Art Gallery opens for the autumn with the exhibition DADLENIN II. The exhibition is the second party of the DADALENIN art project, the first half of which artist Rainer Ganahl showed last year.
The Crystal Palace opens for the autumn season with a group exhibition based on the theme of fleeting nature. Artists Jakob Krajcik, Lina Bjerneld and Albin Karlsson will fill the space on Karlbergsvägen.
After winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Mammy in Gone with the Wind, Hattie McDaniel got stuck playing the role of a black maid. Artist Harold Offeh uses these recurring casting stereotypes as a starting point for his Being Mammy exhibition at Kulturhuset.
Konsthantverkarna kicks off the autumn with the exhibition Tankens landskap (Landscape of the Mind) by award winning textile artist Kazuyo Nomura. With her sense of detail she builds entire forests from stitches.
Works by Bulgarian artist Ivan Moudov remain on show until September 21st at Moderna Museet's contemporary show The 1st at Moderna. Moudov uses collected and often stolen items to question rules’ consistency. Like a 21st century Marcel Duchamp, Moudov gives art collecting a new significance. One finds objects, a video documentary performance, and a specially purchased piece by another artist.
