Upcoming exhibitions

Helga Henschen

14 October 2017–21 January, 2018

A retrospective exhibition will be devoted to the Swedish artist Helga Henschen (1917–2002) in connection with her 100 year anniversary. The exhibition will include paintings, sculptures, posters, illustrations and caricatures from the 1940s through the 1990s. Her imagery includes powerful sun goddesses, protector bulls, children with birds who coexist with outspoken ladies and handwritten messages about care, community and political involvement. Helga Henschen was the granddaughter of Ernest Thiel and thus has a personal connection to Thiel Gallery. This versatile artist had a large impact in Sweden during the 1970s and 80s, and has inspired both art and design. Her disarmingly subtle tone also has great relevance today.
