Dada is Dada
The Dada is Dada exhibition presents paintings, drawings, documents, photography, collages, objects, sound recordings and films from one of the most influential art movements of the 20th century. Dadaism began in 1916 in Zurich as a reaction to the on-going First World War, nationalism, the conservative values of bourgeois society and conventional aesthetic ideals. The exhibition highlights the anti-nationalism of Dadaists, their cross-border networks and desire to question established structures.
Do Ho Suh / Passages
Artist and architect Do Ho Suh investigates architecture as both physical and psychological rooms. In the large Passage/s installation, the artist combines passages and corridors from the different homes he has lived in. In translucent textile structures, he gives form to experiences of mobility and change; crossing borders and moving between different mental spaces.
Bildmuseet is open all day, but the after-work activities starts at 17:00. The restaurant offers a light menu if you want to have a snack. The Art Friday will be open until 21:00, and then it is just a short walk to Umeås night life if you want to continue the evening.
