Mygration: Members Opening with Artists


December 9, 2022



Members: Free

Members are invited to attend the opening celebration for Mygration: An exhibition of works by Tomas Colbengtson and Stina Folkebrant. The artists will be in attendance to discuss the works. Members may tour the exhibition during the event. Light refreshments will be served.

The work of Sámi artist Colbengtson and Swedish artist Folkebrant in Mygration explores the issues of migration, herd mentality, time, and forgotten past. For the exhibition, Colbengtson selected and printed archival photos of Sámi immigrants, which are paired with Folkebrant’s large-scale paintings of the eight seasons of the mountain world, illustrating the Sámi concept of time and the life of the reindeer. 

Meet both artists at this special opening event for National Nordic Museum Members and members of Pacific Sami Searvi.
