Britas salon: Melanie Kitti, Johanne Lykke Naderehvandi and Anna Rieder

6 April 08:00-17:00

For the opening of the exhibition Jag har skalat av mig with the artist Melanie Kitti, we invite you to this spring’s first literature salon. Kitti’s artistry intertwines visual arts with language, where text and painting produce fragmentary images from a landscape of dissolved bodies, divisions and memories. In dialogue with the exhibition, Melanie Kitti and the invited authors Johanne Lykke Naderehvandi and Anna Rieder read from both newly written and earlier texts.

A limited number of tickets can be pre-booked for this evening. Ticket price SEK 120 includes entrance to the museum. The doors open at 18.30 when the museum offers refreshments outside on the loggia. Readings start at 19.00, after which it is possible to see the exhibition that opened earlier the same day.

Brita’s salon is arranged with the support of Region Stockholm.

Warmly welcome!
