DJURGÅRDEN 2016–2019

Jaume Plensa 9.6–23.9 2018

Background

Since 1994 Galleri Andersson/Sandström has been the curator for real estate company Balticgruppen’s award-winning art project Umedalen Skulptur in Umeå. The sculpture park at Umedalen is considered one of Europe’s most important and today consists of 45 permanent works by a selection of top Swedish and international artists.

In 2014 Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, being patrons of the Umeå Cultural Capital of Europe, received a guided tour of the sculpture park and during this visit the idea of ​​arranging a corresponding sculpture exhibition in Stockholm was raised. Together with the royal court and on the initiative of Prince Daniel, it was decided that Galleri Andersson/Sandström in collaboration with the Royal Djurgården administration would conduct a separate exhibition with Tony Cragg in the summer of 2016. The exhibition became a public and medial success and in its five months of existence was seen by several million people.

Due to the successful exhibition, Galleri Andersson/Sandström signed a 3-year agreement with the
Royal Djurgården Administration to arrange sculpture exhibitions at Djurgården during the summers.
In 2017 six sculptures by world-renowned swedish sculptor Eva Hild were exhibited and in 2018 Djurgården will provide the setting for works by spanish artist Jaume Plensa. The exhibition will be inaugurated by Prince Daniel in early June and will last until September (exact dates to be decided). Six sculptures will be installed, one of which will be placed on a submerged concrete plinth in the water (Djurgårdskanalen), two below Rosendal Castle and the remaining three along the waterfront, close to the Technical Museum.
