Museum Exhibits This Winter/Spring

Entrance to Fotografiska
I visited the photography museum Fotografiska (a favorite!) yesterday to see the Aitor Ortiz exhibition of haunting black & white photographs. Loved it... very architectural and thought provoking. This exhibition is going on until March 4th. Other exhibitions at Fotografiska include Norwegian photographer Margaret M. de Lange (also until March 4th) and the upcoming (and much anticipated) Anton Corbijn exhibition (Jan 14th to April 15th).

The National Museum continues with their exhibitions Shimmering Silver (through March) and The Four Seasons (until May 27th). Their big upcoming exhibition is Passions: Five Centuries of Art & the Emotions (March 8th to August 12th).
The modern art museum Moderna will be continuing with their showing of their own collection of photography (Another Story) a little while longer (until Feb 19th). Some upcoming exhibitions include Eija-Liisa Ahtila (Feb 11th to May 6th) and Sturtevant (March 17th to May 17th). And keep your eyes open this summer for their Yoko Ono exhibition... should be great!

The Museum of Ethnography has an amazing exhibtion on the cultural treasures of Afghanistan... precious objects that survíved the Taliban rule. A must see (until March 25th)! Just a couple more weeks to see the Gold Treasures of the Incas, housed in the Skeppsholmen Caverns (until Feb 12th).
At Waldemarsudde they are continuing with their exhibitions of Carl Fredrik Hill (until Jan 29th) and Erik Olson (until Feb 26th) and their new exhibition this season will be Eugène Jansson – Blue Dusk and Naked Athletes (Feb 18th to June 10th).
