Events

Events of interest to our members form an important part of
the Anglo-Swedish Society’s agenda. Some 12-15 are organized
every year and highlighted in our newsletters, produced three
times yearly. Although there is often an obvious Swedish
connection, we take the view that members meeting up and
getting to know each other is the key factor in these popular
get-togethers. The events are often combined with a lunch,
dinner or evening drinks.

    Elmgreen & Dragset at the Whitechapel Gallery

     

    Private group guided tour of Elmgreen & Dragset: This is How we Bite our Tongue

    Join us to see the work of Scandinavian artist duo Michael Elmgreen (Danish) and Ingar Dragset (Norwegian), well known for their Rocking Horse fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square.  In their uncanny, beguiling installations, institutional spaces are wittily transformed into metaphors for personal desires and collective identities. 

    The exhibition combines a survey of their emotional figurative sculptures with a large-scale installation that meditates on the fate of civic space.

    Price: £19.50
