A retrospectiveSun 14 Nov —Sun 20 Feb
Margareta Renberg (1945–2005) went her own way at a time when much in society was marked by politics. She took a stand for art and its freedom. Her imagery is imaginative and surreal, but can at the same time be experienced as simple, natural and everyday. Her art is dreamy, and many paintings may at first glance appear abstract, but if you let your gaze linger, familiar objects and bodies appear.
Margareta Renberg was also a poet, her debut collection En tatuerad dams memoarer [A Tattooed Lady’s Memoirs] was published in 1974. During the 1960s, she studied at Konstfack (the University of Arts, Crafts and Design) and the Royal College of Art in Stockholm. She has been a member of the Academy of Fine Arts since 1995. The exhibition shows different central works from Margareta Renberg’s art in various techniques; drawing, graphics, painting and sculpture.
The exhibition is a collaboration between Konsthallen, Kulturens hus, Luleå, Norrbotten’s museum and Västerbotten’s museum.
