In the exhibition Dialogues: Fashion Beyond the Wearable, four of the most renowned Swedish fashion designers of the 21st century engage in a dialogue with some of the classics of art history found in the collection of the Gothenburg Museum of Art. They present new works and installations with connections to artists such as Louise Nevelson, Berit Lindfeldt, Rodin, Henry Moore, and the 17th-century German artist Ottmar Elliger the Elder.
Sandra Backlund, Martin Bergström, Helena Hörstedt and Diana Orving have set the tone in Swedish fashion since the turn of the millennium. With fashion beyond the wearable, they engage in a dialogue with the collection of the Gothenburg Museum of Art. These four fashion designers’ work, methods, and questions have many similarities with contemporary artists, not only visually but also conceptually.
