Dupont Underground, in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden, presents the video art exhibition “You Don’t Love Me, Yet” with eight prominent Swedish artists from varying backgrounds and different generations. Art reflects its times, and the artists in this exhibition depict societal change, interpersonal relationships, and the interaction between humans and nature.
The exhibition at Dupont Underground is a selection of films from the video box Art on Screen produced by the Swedish Institute in collaboration with Kalmar Art Museum in Sweden.
Participating artists: Annika Eriksson, Bigert & Bergström, Catti Brandelius, Hanna Ljungh, Johanna Billing, Petronella Petander, Salad Hilowle, Santiago Mostyn.
Art reflects its times, and the artists in this exhibition depict societal change, interpersonal relationships, and the interaction between humans and nature.
The video works are displayed in “living rooms,” all designed by Washington-based architecture firms, which create a sharp contrast to the unique and rough character of the abandoned streetcar station under Dupont Circle.
The exhibition opens at 6 pm, with a welcome address by the Ambassador of Sweden to the United States H.E. Karin Olofsdotter at 7 pm, followed by an artist talk with Mats Bigert in dialogue with curator Johan Pousette.
Bigert & Bergström is participating in the exhibition with their documentary/art film, The Weather War (2012).
