Conversations on Art and Science:
Henrik Håkansson: An Introduction

Tuesday, December 2, 6:00 p.m.
SAIC Columbus Auditorium, 280 S. Columbus Dr.

Swedish artist Henrik Håkansson is a naturalist who has repositioned his fascination with nature into the art world, over time becoming an accomplished amateur expert. Focusing on the minutiae of nature, but often presented on a grand scale, his projects combine the interests of a biologist, ethnologist, and artist, recalling the 19th-century explorers who documented the natural and cultural riches of then little-known lands and unknown environments. Håkansson’s recent exhibitions include Lunds Konsthall, Lund, Sweden; MIMA Sound Space, Middlesbrough, UK; and Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver. He was included in the 19th Biennale of Sydney (2014), Yokohama Triennale, Yokohama, Japan (2011), São Paulo Biennial (2003), and 50th Venice Biennale (2003).
