Lars Englund – Under Construction

Malmö, 18.2 2023 – 3.9 2023

Lars Englund’s art is characterized by exploration and could be described as “work in progress.” Englund has collaborated with cement and rubber factories, bases his work on machine parts and industrial materials, changes scale from model to monumental, and finds inspiration in subways and Baroque architecture alike. This exhibition spans from paintings Englund made the early 1950s that have rarely been shown to sculptures from the 2000s.

Twilight Land

Malmö, 29.10 2022 – 9.4 2023

Twilight Land is an international group exhibition featuring several large-scale new commissions. It explores the feeling of standing on the threshold of the unknown. Of realising that the world and our lives  cannot continue in the same way, but not knowing what is to come. Through sculptural installation, film, and painting, the exhibition tries to portray this state of liminality – the twilight land.

Moderna Museet presents the work of photographer Nan Goldin as a filmmaker in a new retrospective

Stockholm, 29.10 2022 – 26.2 2023

“I have always wanted to be a filmmaker. My slideshows are films made up of stills,” says Nan Goldin. Moderna Museet’s retrospective is the first exhibition to present a comprehensive overview of Goldin’s work as a filmmaker. The exhibition is installed in six unique buildings designed by Hala Wardé, an architect whom frequently works with Goldin. Each building is designed in response to the specific piece. Together they constitute a village. (NOTE. Please, do not use Nan Goldin’s own images in social media channels.

Korakrit Arunanondchai

From dying to living

Stockholm, 17.9 2022 – 9.4 2023

What brings us together and what divides us? Gatherings, both ritualistic and political, are at the core of Korakrit Arunanondchai’s work. In this exhibition the celebrated artist explores the threshold between life and death, as a space where new possibilities can be imagined, involving the individual and the collective. On show are a number of new works in immersive settings, by an artist who can rightly call himself a storyteller.
