Last week, we brought a look inside the studio of Michael Johansson in Malmø where he was busy preparing for his show at the Vigeland-Museet in Oslo, Norway. We now have some photos of the recently closes said exhibition, Familiar Abstractions, which features the tetris-like created cubes made from everyday objects that the Swedish artist is known for. Along with these color-coded assemblages, Johansson also filled in some doorways in with some installation work as well as displayed some grid-like sculptural pieces from rack-like materials.

Our hearts go out to the people of Boston and the incredibly sad tragedy they are dealing with.

Even more exciting, the guest appearance will only be a preview to a larger Sculpture Plinth Exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), opening […]
