Silver shells, embroidered shelters and basketball nets standing on the ground. Once again it is time for the winners of the Sten A. Olsson Scholarship for Culture to present their work in an exhibition at the Gothenburg Museum of Art. This year, the participants are Lotta Antonsson, Ida-Lovisa Rudolfsson and Fredrik Åkum.
The exhibition featuring the winners of the Sten A. Olsson Scholarship for Culture opens on December 3 in the Stena Gallery. As usual, it includes several works by each artist, of which some are newly produced and never shown before.
During the past twenty years, the Sten A. Olsson Foundation for Research and Culture has awarded a large number of education scholarships to talented people working with art, music, theatre, dance, literature, design and scenography. Since 1996, a number of important artists have received the prize and followed the tradition of exhibiting at the museum in conjunction with this. The recipients are awarded 150 000 SEK each and the purpose of the scholarships is to allow already established artists to develop further.
This year’s exhibition is rich in variation and presents painting, silver, photography, collages and textiles by three well-known artists from three different generations – Lotta Antonsson, Ida-Lovisa Rudolfsson and Fredrik Åkum.
