Konst 2018

Richard Johansson Folk Art Museum 

Opening Friday March 30, 2018
Exhibition Period March 30 – June 24, 2018

Spring at Wanås Konst starts on March 30, in conjunction with local art tour Konstrundan, with the exhibition Folk Art Museum, a traveling museum and artwork by artist Richard Johansson, who is both originator and museum director. For several years, Johansson has collected paintings, sculptures, and objects that can be classified as folk art. Folk art has followed him since his childhood and functions as an affectionate source of inspiration for his entire artistic oeuvre. This spring, the project will move onward and park at Wanås. The work consists of a rolling covered wagon, sculpted by the artist, with a collection of folk art. In addition, based on an open call, folk art will be shown in the Art Gallery in an exhibition curated by the artist.

Do you have folk art created by yourself or by someone else? During the winter of 2018 we collect folk art objects and a selection will be part of the exhibition in the Art Gallery. Folk art can be any art created by people without formal art training. It can be paintings, sculptures, embroidery or completely other objects – by textile, iron, wood, stone, oil paint, aquarelle… Old and new, by yourself or by someone else – everything is interesting for this project. You can submit your objects at Wanås every weekday until March 2. For more information or contact Albin (albin@wanaskonst.se / 044 660 71) and learn how you can submit your art work. Until March 2, 2018 you can submit your own folk art objects to the exhibition.
