Hilma Af Klint Paintings of the Future Book
Hey, get ready for a mind-blowing art experience! The first-ever massive showcase of Hilma af Klint's work is hitting the U.S., and it's a game-changer. "Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future" is not just a glimpse into her groundbreaking painting series but a deep dive into her life and art. Essays spill the tea on the social, intellectual, and artistic vibes that fueled af Klint's revolutionary break with figuration in 1906. We're talking Swedish modernism, folk art traditions, scientific discoveries, and a sprinkle of spiritualist and occult movements.
But that's not all – a badass roundtable with contemporary artists, scholars, and curators is going down. They're dissecting af Klint's sources and why she's still the talk of the town in the 21st century art scene. And let's not forget the juicy details about af Klint's unrealized dream – a freakin' spiral-shaped temple to showcase her art. Guess what? The Guggenheim Museum's rotunda is making that dream come true. Get ready to have your mind blown at this exhibition!
