Hannah Ryggen @ Modern Art Oxford
11 November 2017 - 18 February 2018
Hannah Ryggen (1894-1970) was one of Scandinavia’s most outstanding artistic figures of the 20th century. In the first major presentation of the artist’s work in the UK, this exhibition surveys her career from an early painted portrait created in 1914, to the intricate tapestries that characterised her extraordinary career from the 1920s onward. Her work demonstrates her impassioned responses to the socio-political events of her time. Ryggen’s intense relationship to the world around her forms the heart of this exhibition, which celebrates both her vibrant tapestries and the processes involved in creating them.
