The Ilon Wikland Exhibition at the Gothenburg Museum of Art opens on May 25th

Next Saturday, the Gothenburg Museum of Art invites you to the opening of one of Ilon Wikland’s largest exhibitions in Sweden to date – Ilon Wikland’s visual worlds. Fairytales, adventures and everyday life. With over 400 original works, visitors will be given a unique insight into Ilon Wikland’s artistry – from the magic in Mio, My Son to adventures in Ronja the Robber’s Daughter and everyday life in Lotta on Troublemaker Street. The public is invited to participate in a playful environment that showcases Wikland’s rich visual worlds and encourages children to explore.

“Ilon Wikland’s visual worlds. Fairytales, adventures and everyday life” is the most comprehensive exhibition of Ilon Wikland’s work in Sweden to date. Here, visitors can see familiar motifs, sketches, and works that have never been on display before. In a setting where nostalgia and adventure go hand in hand, the galleries become a place where old and young can meet across the generation gap. Step into an enchanted fairytale world, gain a more in-depth understanding of Ilon Wikland’s life, and experience a teeming environment with iconic characters and stories!
