Med ryggen mot världen / With My Back to the World, Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland 4.7–2.8 2015

We are pleased to announce this summer’s exhibition at Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland. The rebuilt limestone barn located on northeastern Gotland functions as Galleri Magnus Karlsson’s project space during summertime and this year marks our fifth consecutive presence throughout the month of July. This year’s exhibition, With My Back to the World, has been curated in collaboration with gallery artist Carl Hammoud, who also participates in the exhibition with Mette Björnberg, Ann Edholm and Bella Rune.

Jockum Nordström, Albertina, Vienna, Austria

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.

Roger Andersson, Millesgården, Stockholm, Sweden

The exhibition enhances the experience of Millesgården in its summer apparel. Bouquets, plants and flower arrangements in painting, photography and video art demonstrates how flowers can convey everything from desire and pleasure to death and impermanence, from the 17th century until today. The exhibition texts are written by a garden journalist who adds a gardeners perspective to the exhibition.

Participating artists:
Olga Milles, Andy Warhol, Eugène Jansson, Sara Ekström, Heikki Marila, Maria Sibylla Merian, Denise Grünstein & Roger Andersson among others.
