2021-09-11 — 2022-01-23

“A Room of One’s Own – The artist role during the late 19th century” is an exhibition at Waldemarsudde that focuses on how female artists conquered the artist role during a time of radical social change and aspirations for gender equality. The presentation describes how significant nordic artists like Julia Beck, Hanna Hirsch-Pauli, Bertha Wegmann och Helene Schjerfbeck stages themselves in the artist role in dialogue with their contemporary male colleges such as Edvard Munch, Ernst Josephson, Christian Krohg, Carl Larsson och Anders Zorn.

The exhibition also examines  how collectors and art critics contributed to profiling and elevating contemporary artists. The artists’ traveling, internationalization, as well as the importance of the exhibition-media, especially the Salon in Paris, are further themes that are highlighted in the exhibition. Approximately a hundred visually strong and innovative works with motifs such as self-portraits, peer portraits, and studio interiors are displayed in this extensive, exciting, and research-based exhibition.
