An important characteristic of contemporary creation is the interdisciplinary dialogue between art, design and architecture. Radical exchanges are taking place with minds and materials pooling into multi-faceted collaborations. Galerie Maria Wettergren highlights the works of contemporary Scandinavian artists/designers in the center of this phenomenon. Standing out for their innovative and poetic pieces, they are part of important museum collections such as the MoMA and the Centre Pompidou.
Maria Wettergren equally organizes exhibitions by modern and contemporary photographers such as Rodolphe Proverbio. A monographic exhibition with the work of the French artist Etienne Bertrand Weill is under preparation for 2014.
The gallery is participating in international art and design fairs such as Design Miami/Basel, PAD Paris / London and FIAC, and has received twice the Award-winning Stand at the PAD Paris and PAD london fair 2012 by a jury composed by among others Jean-Michel Wilmotte, Zaha Hadid and Tom Dixon.
