Umeå Academy of Fine Arts / Fool's Gold

[2017-04-25] This year's exhibition by graduate students from the master's programme at the Umeå Academy of Fine Arts is entitled Fool's Gold. It opens at Bildmuseet on Saturday 6 May. Welcome to a press preview on Thursday 4 May at 10:00.

Fool's Gold is the culmination of five years of study in Fine Arts and displays a wide range of ideas. Based on their specific interests and personalities, the students have developed independent ways of working. The exhibition title refers to the beginning of a journey that involves a permanent questioning of what defines values and expression.

The exhibition presents works by Razvan Anghelache, Ellen Angus, Jessika Björhn, Simon Gran Danielsson, Jonas Malmberg, Anna Olaes Parker, Cia Ringertz, Jonas Silfversten Bergman, Jenny Simm, Annika Stridh and Melanie Wiksell. The main instructor has been Professor Swetlana Heger.
