Women in Art, Design and Architecture

This online edition celebrates established and upcoming female practitioners in art, design and architecture to celebrate diversity in the creative industries.

In her latest exhibition at Form Design / Center in Malmö, Swedish designer Kajsa Willner imagines a more nuanced and holistic attitude towards the major sustainability challenges we face concerning plastics.

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.

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. 

Greek artist Athina Ioannou maximizes and reinterprets painting through minimal and economic means. Her sensuous ‘abstract’ painting – what she refers to as ‘plus-painting’ – arises from the ‘intensification’ of ready-made carriers through the patient all-over saturation of her work with linseed oil.

Whether it’s by using scutched flax fibres to create a rug or 65 litres of crude oil to create a a stone-like table, Pauline Esparon’s process is dedicated to transforming the unrefined materials that surround us to highlight the qualities that we’ve taken for granted.
