Gunvor Nelson in Borås – and soon in Göteborg

Art historian John Sundholm introducing Gunvor Nelson's films to the audience at Borås Art Museum. Gunvor Nelson herself is second from the right, and first to the right is Petra Johansson, curator at Borås Art Museum.

Saturday was opening day for the exhibition of Gunvor Nelson’s films at Borås Art Museum. Gunvor Nelson is a Swedish artist who was part of the experimental film scene in San Fransisco from the 60’s and onwards. She now lives in Kristinehamn, Sweden and is still working as intensely as ever. Her films are very original, each very different from the other, addressing subjects like childhood, aging, family and the body. 13 of them will be screened in a large retrospective at GIFF, with Gunvor Nelson present for a masterclass on Tuesday, Feb 1. Don’t miss!
