ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
"The Big Misconception" presents Carl Johan De Geer's textile work. Textiles, test prints, pattern sketches and photographs from the early 1960s to the early 2000s have been lent to Bildmuseet from museums and private collections. The exhibition is produced by Bildmuseet and is put together in collaboration with the artist.
ABOUT THE FILM PROGRAMME
A selection of Carl Johan De Geer's short films will be looped during the opening evening, for example autobiographical "Mormor, Hitler och jag" (17 min) and "Jag minns Lena Svedberg" (6 min), a portrait of an artist friend who took her life and a support for documentary photography. Film language: Swedish.
ABOUT THE GUEST DJ
DJ this Art Friday is Faux Rabbit, who will present an audio-visual set with a swirling mix of indie, alternative, neo-psychedelic, dream pop, post-punk and garage. Accompanied by a collage-like video projection of old movie clips.
Bildmuseet is open all day, but the Friday evening activities start 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 Umeå's nightlife if you want to continue the evening.
