Lars Nilsson follows up the Curitiba International Biennal success with solo exhibition at Instituto Tomie Ohtake in São Paolo, Brazil.

As a direct result of his exhibition Ghosts at the Curitiba International Biennal, Lars Nilsson has been invited for a solo exhibition in São Polo, Brazil. The exhibition takes place at well-renowned Instituto Tomie Ohtake and opens on February 20th. Lars Nilsson, who was recently elected member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, was one of the artists who got his part of the Curitiba International Biennal extended due to massive demand.

Ever since the opening in October 2015, the queues to Oscar Niemeyer Museum in Curitiba, where Lars Nilsson’s installation is shown together with work by other artists, have shown no signs of dwindling. The Curitiba International Biennal grows constantly and this edition was the largest to date. Due to the extensive crowd pressure the organization decided to extend the exhibition period and as a result of this curator Teixeira Coelho also has contributed to Ghosts being showed as a solo exhibition at Instituto Tomie Ohtake in São Paolo, opening on February 20th. 

Lars Nilsson’s time and space defying sculptures have received major attention during the 22nd edition of the Curitiba International Biennal in Brazil - this time themed “World Light”. In the latest edition of well renowned magazine ArtNexus, Adolfo Montejo writes (excerpt):  “Through his art Lars Nilsson has examined sensitive topics such as the male gaze, sexuality and the dark forces of emotional life. These have been portrayed through painting, photography, video and installations. Nilsson’s library of references is large and knowingly, his mind is moving between historical material and our present time. A painting by Cy Twombly, the sci-fi movie Avatar or a historical text on Constitutional law can be the spark that starts a new work.”

Lars Nilsson makes news on his own home ground as well: at the end of 2015 he was elected new member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts with the following justification (excerpt):

“Through his art Lars Nilsson has examined sensitive topics such as the male gaze, sexuality and the dark forces of emotional life. These have been portrayed through painting, photography, video and installations. Nilsson’s library of references is large and knowingly, his mind is moving between historical material and our present time. A painting by Cy Twombly, the sci-fi movie Avatar or a historical text on Constitutional law can be the spark that starts a new work.”

Lars Nilsson, born 1956, lives and works in Stockholm, but is active internationally. His artistic methods include painting, sculpture, video and spatial installations. Among his more extensive solo exhibitions, we find venues such as the X-Room at the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall in Stockholm. Exhibitions at PS1 Museum in New York, Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Palazzo delle Papessa in Sienna are also worth mentioning. Lars Nilsson is a Professor in fine arts and worked at the Malmö Art Academy during 1995 - 2006.
