Mamma Andersson, The National Gallery, Oslo, Norway

From Press Release:
This exhibition will showcase the woodcut and its many functions and stylistic possibilities.

With varying degrees of popularity, the age-old woodcut technique has been in use since the sixteenth century, and there seems recently to be a renewed interest in this art form. Is there a connection between today’s digitized visual media and the woodcuts of yore?

New Opening Days

Mamma Andersson m fl, Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, UK

For the month of May, Stephen Friedman Gallery becomes Galerie de l‘Epoque, a fictional gallery founded in Paris in 1948. An immersive experience takes visitors back to a period environment evoking the aesthetic of an earlier era, presenting European twentieth century masters and classical contemporary artists from America, Europe, Japan and South America. Picasso, Schwitters and Klee sit comfortably with the likes of Isa Genzken, Jiro Takamatsu and Gego.

Mamma Andersson & Jens Fänge, Artipelag, Stockholm, Sweden

In the exhibition HERE/NOW, Artipelag would like to take a stand for the physical meeting between artwork and the viewer. The title of the exhibition refers to artist Barnett Newman’s praised 1948 essay, The Sublime is Now. In the essay, Newman propagates the idea that the meeting between contemplator and artwork should be like a meeting between two people, wherein the relationship is based on a profound dialogue.

2014, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

We are pleased to present the group exhibition 2014. A selection of gallery artists including: Mamma Andersson, Lars Arrhenius, Thomas Broomé, Sara-Vide Ericson, Carl Hammoud, Tommy Hilding, Kent Iwemyr, Richard Johansson, Susanne Johansson, Lisa Jonasson, Klara Kristalova, Ulf Lundin, Maria Nordin, Dan Wolgers and others.

Mamma Andersson, Musée d'Art Moderne, Paris, France

Until the late 19th century, painters like Lotto, Holbein and Delacroix restricted themselves to drawing tapestry cartoons or including Oriental carpets in their pictures. Over the course of the 20th century, however, the European avant-garde revolutionized textile art and practice; artists began weaving their own rugs, inspired by works from earlier periods or drawing upon ethnic and geometric motifs.

Time Waits for Us, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to announce a group exhibition that will be on display throughout the summer. In conjunction with the inauguration of Nationalmuseum’s temporary space with the exhibition Carl Larsson - Friends and Enemies in our building (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts), we will show Time Waits for Us . This exhibition presents new works by all of our gallery artists.

Mamma Andersson, Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, UK

Stephen Friedman Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Mamma Andersson. Andersson, born in 1962, paints complex compositions that bring together a variety of sources including Nordic figurative painting, folk art and contemporary iconography. She juxtaposes thick impasto and loosely washed areas to create dreamlike and expressive vistas yet also allows reality to enter her paintings in the form of the commonplace.

Stargazer - Curated by Mamma Andersson, Sven Harrys Konstmuseum, Stockholm, Sweden

From Press Release (in Swedish):

En utställning curerad av Karin Mamma Andersson

Som betraktare kan en särskild glädje vara att få gå in i konstnärs bildvärld, och låta sig ryckas med av dess stämning. Ibland kan ett uttryck och ett formspråk vara så starkt och egenartat, att man börjar se verkligheten litet annorlunda, sedan man tagit del av det. Man har berikats.


Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to present Mamma Andersson’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery. Mamma Andersson (b. 1962 in Luleå) lives and works in Stockholm. A comprehensive and much appreciated touring solo exhibition produced by Moderna Museet, Stockholm recently finished.
