Sven-Harrys konstmuseum presents the exhibition Art in Fashion.
Under the direction of curator Cay Bond, Sven-Harrys konstmuseum is exploring the importance of fashion in art and the importance of art in fashion in the new exhibition Art in Fashion, on view between February 14 and September 27. The exhibition brings together works by Nikoline Liv Andersen, BITE, Martin Bergström, Ann Bonander Looft, Selam Fessahaye, Mark Kenly Domino Tan, Linda Nurk, Astrid Olsson, Diana Orving, Stina Randestad, Olivier Saillard, Bea Szenfeld, Henrik Vibskov, and Wilhja.
Cay Bond is a fashion expert, journalist, trend spotter, and experienced cultural analyst. In her first exhibition for Sven-Harrys konstmuseum, she has selected fourteen important fashion designers—Swedish and international stars—that all have one thing in common: their work is clearly influenced by art.
In every era, successful fashion designers have been able to capture the spirit of the day. They share that sensibility with artists, whose relationship with contemporary culture has always been practically symbiotic. This is an opportunity to get a close look at Olivier Saillard’s installation Moda Povera, the dramatic creations Copenhagen-based Nikoline Liv Andersen has designed for musical artist Björk to wear in various performances, and award-winning design star Selam Fessahaye’s creations with distinctive explosions of materials. The show also features a new piece by Princess Madeleine’s favorite designer, Linda Nurk; romantic knit items of soft wool by Ann Bonander Looft; a perfectly tailored overcoat by BITE Studios; an elegant dress and tuxedo by the Danish Royal Family’s favorite, Mark Kenly Domino Tan (MKDT); Diana Orving’s feminine creations with an artistic touch; and the organically inspired installations of internationally recognized designer Martin Bergström.
This presentation by Sven-Harrys konstmuseum with Cay Bond features work by the avant-garde of the fashion world—a celebration of the bold, the modern, and the innovative and at the same time a recognition of traditional craftsman expertise and masterful design. Fashion and art always spark public interest and engagement, and this is an exhibition that will be easy to talk about.
