Liljevalchs ”Spring Salon” is on fire! It received an all-time high of 2 505 applications for this year's show. Which deep down meant a tough round for the celeb jury, consisting of artists Charlotte Gyllenhammar and Ernst Billgren, musician Magnus Uggla and museum director Mårten Castenfors. Out came 127 artists and 295 works of art. Unfortunately most of these works are paintings - but there are also some sculptures and video works included, as well as graphic and textile works. Surprisingly, there are very few artists working with photography who managed to qualify.
Liljevalchs Spring Salon is still on tour at the very epicentre of Stockholm while the ordinary space at Djurgården is being renovated. In a previous office space is now a low-key and introverted exhibition. But hey, don't be frighten, the famous Spring Salon is still what it is with its excitement and the hectic hunt for the next big art star. Get there in time!
