MUSIC IN ART

Vernissage: 5th of May 2011, Milliken (Stockholm)

Hans Berg at work

Thursday night was packed with prominent openings. This was also the night of widely recognized artists. Our first destination was definitely a must see, the famous combination of Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg. Nathalie Djurberg is frequently accompanied by alternative, electronic music from composer Hans Berg and in this exhibition the audience had the opportunity to see the composer live were his music merged with Djurberg’s unique, humouristic videos.

The exhibition was the opening of Miliken Gallery music festival with several upcoming events. The festival´s aim is to look at the influence of music in contemporary art, focusing on the vital Swedish art-scene were music and art frequently blend. The exhibitions present work by Christine Ödlund, Gul Amiral, Matti Kallioinen, Peter Geschwind, Andreas Nilsson, Hans Appelqvist and Fredrik Söderberg.

The exhibition is sponsored by Absolut Vodka and the crowded bar was met by delightful bartenders mixing delicious cocktails as professionals. Visitors were in good spirit, enjoying the night and Konsthopp is already excited about the next happening. The upcoming events are on the 7th, 20th and 27th of May 2011, from 18.00 to 20.00.

UNFINISHED ANALOGIES

Vernissage: 23rd of April 2011, Konsthall C (Stockholm)

An exhibition that according to the curator Jacquelyn Davis hopes to provide an entry point into how new policy changes within the EU alter the relationship between the art school, art student and international students.

Artist contributors were given the opportunity to create new work as a response and /or critique to provide solutions, navigational insight or perspective and arise questions about the international student’s changing role in Sweden’s art school settings.
