Tensta Konsthall Stockholm: Doing What You Want and Dream and Reality
Up-coming events at Tensta konsthall Stockholm:
Doing what you want: Marie-Louise Ekman accompanied by Sister Corita Kent, Mladen Stilinovic and Martha Wilson
The main character in the exhibition, Doing what you want, is Marie-Louise Ekman, one of the principal artists in the group PUSS during the 1960s, film-maker, professor at the Royal University College of Fine Arts, and presently the director of the theatre. In the exhibition her unique art is interpreted from an international perspective. Everyday surrealism, pop culture, cross-dressing and political satire also occupied other artists during the same time, if in other places and in entirely different contexts. Director Maria Lind introduces the exhibition at 7 pm.
Dream and Reality: On changing roles, cross-over dressing and the artist as joker
Presentations and discussion with the artist Martha Wilson and the curator/art historian Silvia Eibelmayr. Dream and Reality is a series of seminars based on the work of Marie-Louise Ekman. In collaboration with the Institution for Culture and Communication at Södertörn University and ABF (the Workers’ Educational Association). In English.
