Observingarts: Ladies night
The previous years we have seen important but well underexposed, female artist re-entering the Scandinavian art scene: Gerda Wegener, Hilma af Klint and Anna-Eva Bergmann. To mention a few. Hopefully this trend continues on a Scandinavian level. There are more: Irma Salo Jæger (2:52 on timeline) to mention another important painter. Female painters are important mid century innovators leaving behind productions of high quality and with lots of relevance for new generations.
This re-discovery contributes to the artscene. I look forward to presenting more in this blog as they re enter the gallery and museum scenes in Scandinavia and abroad. When will we see the first attempt to match Munch with female c(ontemporary) artists in Norway? There are gems still to be re discovered - or plainly to be re introduced to new audiences.
