76 artists presented by 28 galleries across five Nordic capitals. CHART launches its de-centred programme of exhibitions, talks, and events taking place in each participating gallery from 28-30 August, marking the eighth edition of the annual Nordic event for contemporary art.

Hilma af Klint

Before Kandinsky, Malevich and Mondrian, there was Hilma af Klint. After a breakout exhibition of her work in their Stockholm museum back in 2013, Malmö’s Moderna Musseet revisits the Swedish artist’s oeuvre to present new insights into af Klimt’s systematic research.

Founder of the fashion department of the Ecole nationale supérieure des Arts Visuels (ENSAV) in Brussels, in 1986, which she later baptised La Cambre Mode(s), Francine Pairon continued to pursue her vision, eventually creating a postgraduate degree in fashion design at the Institut Français de la Mode (IFM) in Paris.

Erez Nevi Pana’s research gives an answer to a specific question: is it possible to conceive design without using any kind of material derived from animals? Born in Bnei Brak (Israel) in 1983, the designer transfers his attitude of deep respect towards life.

Now available through MoMa’s ‘Virtual Views’ programme, Neri Oxman’s latest exhibition not only takes a critical look at the future of architecture and design, but also aims to re-define the role of the designer as the initiator of a process, rather than the decisive form-giver of an object. 

Vincent Fournier

In this extensive conversation between Christian Larsen and photographer Vincent Fournier, we learn about the aesthetics and interests behind ‘Brasília, A Time Capsule’, a series which investigates the architecture, landscape, and people of Brasília (Brazil).

Collaborator of our sister gallery Spazio Nobile, Matthias Kohn, developed a project about home, nature, and hospitality. In essence, the concept is based on the idea of placing furniture, most often used in private interior settings, thus adapted for this type of use, and suggesting comfort, in exterior settings, where the impact of the piece on the respective surroundings is allowed to develop fully.
