Skissernas Night: Art Stories – Art and abundance

Skissernas Museum presents SKISSERNAS NIGHT – ONLINE EDITION!
During four weekends in April, you can take part in an exciting digital program with artist talks, concerts, guided tours, art quizze and a creative workshop. A small cultural festival, for you to experience from your own sofa!

Want to learn more about art? About the stories that art can tell – about a person, about society, about a time or a place. Art stories are a series of special guided tours (in Swedish) where our educators provide biographical, thematic and historical insights into art based on the museum's collections and temporary exhibitions.

Art and abundance
When the Icelandic artist Erró visits New York for the first time in the early 1960s, he meets a society of abundance, which not only means a plethora of new phenomena and products, but also an abundance of images. The explosion of colourful newspaper images, advertisements, photographs and comics radically changes his creative process! He completely stops trying to come up with his own image ideas and instead starts making collages of an already existing visual world.You will find out more about this in this episode of Art Stories, where our art educator Frida tells why Erró's collage sketch for a facade painting from 1981 is a good example of art and abundance.

In Swedish.

LOCATION: The museum's webbsite, YouTube och Facebook.


Skissernas Night is arranged in cooperation with Sparbanken Skåne through support from Sparbanksstiftelsen Finn.
