Exhibition; Veronica Nygren at Thielska

There are several textile exhibitions on Djurgården in Stockholm right now. At Thielska Galleriet there is an exhibition about the textile artist Veronica Nygren. The exhibition is described as;

"Veronica Nygren (1940-2006) had the ability to weave an entire world into her art. She filled it with everyday experiences and political awareness, with knowledge about Swedish crafts traditions and global influences, in a vibrant dialogue with art history and contemporary art. Nygren indefatigably put the potential of textiles to the test. Today, she stands out as a regenerator of textile art and design in post-war Sweden. (...) By showing Veronica Nygren’s innovative art at the Thielska Gallery, we are upholding a tradition of taking textiles seriously, as an art form in its own right."

It is very uplifting to see Thielska making a large exhibition on a textile artist and also presenting it in a interesting context. So definitely a recommendation to go see it if you are in Stockholm! Another interesting exhibition right now is at HV Gallery about the Friends of Finnish Handicraft and their ryijy rugs.
