Cries and Whispers is a group exhibition presenting Swedish contemporary painting and sculpture. Here, eight artists, born in the 60s, 70s and 80s, are invited to represent a figurative art movement that has received great attention in Sweden and internationally. The title, borrowed from Ingmar Bergman’s film Cries and Whispers from 1972, echoes in the exhibition. There is a strong relationship between these artists, but also crucial differences in their approach. Both the intimate, vulnerable whispers and the distant, powerful cries can be traced.
We have the pleasure to present Jeff Olsson’s third exhibition at the gallery. A Wobbly Aim presents drawings made in the last year. In the center of the exhibition hangs a jacket filled with drawn image fragments that can be seen as a compound portrait, or a workers jacket for poets.
Bonniers Konsthall opens the 2018 spring season with the most comprehensive solo exhibition of artist Jens Fänge. Fänge works with paint and assemblage and has occupied an esteemed position in the Swedish art world for quite some time. His work has recently received international attention. Drömmarna (The Dreams) focuses on his more recent production, a style characterised by the artist’s inclination to allow the paintings to extend beyond the canvas and into the room.

Soon enough: art in action is an exhibition about futures. It is inspired by the urgencies of our time, and a conviction that artistic practice can communicate complex problems and coordinate resistance. Some art works in the exhibition address the future directly, others point to phenomena, topics, skills or attitudes which will be more important in days to come. Self-organisation, craft and manual skills, play a certain role in the exhibition. So do collaborative methods, research-based practices, the rural, and cosmos.
”Marcel Dzama (Winnipeg, Canada, 1974) gallery artist since 2010, presents his third exhibition. The title of this new exhibition – It’s Time – is a warning about the times we live in. The concept of the exhibition is connected to the theoretical, political and social principles developed by the dada movement conceived by Francis Picabia and Tristan Tzara – among others – as a reaction to World War I and Francisco de Goya’s Disasters of War, which reflect the cruelty of the Spanish war of Independence.
On the occasion of the gallery’s 25th anniversary, David Zwirner will present a special exhibition celebrating the artists who have shaped the gallery’s program since its founding in 1993.
