2017 is the 30-year anniversary of the Beckers Art Award. This will be presented in a commemorative exhibition where all former winners of the award will participate alongside with this year’s winner, Anna Camner. Beckers Art award was established in 1987 and has since then proven to have a remarkable ability to identify young talent on the brink of a breakthrough in their careers. The winner is awarded a grant, which from this year has been raised from 150 000 to 200 000 SEK, and a solo exhibition that has, since 2001, been arranged and held in collaboration with Färgfabriken.
One day, I found a small painting by the shamefully underappreciated artist Lennart Rohde at an online auction. This painting caught my attention. Upon seeing this combination of information, which had so obviously not been tested for functionality. I doubled over with laughter and found the title to this exhibition. Ej funktionstestad (Untested).
We are pleased to present Jockum Nordström’s seventh solo exhibition in the gallery; När ingen vandrar vägen fram, då vandrar vägen själv sitt damm. The exhibition features collages, drawings and sculptures from the last year, and is presented in all rooms of the gallery.
From Press Release:
The National Gallery of Iceland begins its exhibition program in the new year with an exhibition that brings together four contemporary artists: Gauthier Hubert (1967), Chantal Joffe (1969), Jockum Nordström (1963) and Tumi Magnússon (1957). All four center their work on the human being itself. The presentation of their work revolves around art itself and its history, both ancient and modern, and they take quite disparate approaches to historical points of departure.

The Drawing Now exhibition provides an up-to-date survey of drawing, painting and illustration in contemporary art. It showcases the viewpoints of around 35 international artists who collectively represent contemporary drawing and who, individually, are taking it in a direction of their own. Drawing Now sheds light on the diversity of issues that artists articulate with the aid of drawing, and shows drawing in its exciting dimensions and manifestations.
As every year since 2006, The Daniel & Florence Guerlain Foundation for contemporary art will award its prize during the Salon du dessin, on Thursday 26th March 2015.

From Press Release:
This major survey of work by Swedish artist Jockum Nordström (b.1963) brings together collages, graphite drawings and architectural sculptures, representing the breadth of his work from the 1990s to the most recent pieces made especially for the exhibition. The title All I have Learned and Forgotten Again harks back to the wisdom and magic of childhood, a lament of the lost innocence that gives way to the demands of an adult world.

1963 besökte Beatles Borås och -63 var också året för bandets stora genombrott, ett genombrott som på flera sätt förändrade världen. Popen fyller 50 år och det uppmärksammar Borås konstmuseum med en utställning som manifesterar relationen mellan bild och musik. Ett trettiotal inbjudna konstnärer (bland andra Jockum Nordström, Nina Bondesson, Anna-Clara Tidholm, Max Book) har låtit sig inspireras av den svenska popen med dess förgreningar som hårdrock och hip-hop till exempel. Foto, skivomslag och flyers från de gångna 50 åren utgör en separat del av utställningen.
