Cultural Boost for Sami art
The exhibition Sami prism with four Sami artists gets a Cultural Boost from Umeå 2014.
The four Sami artists have fundamentally different ways of expression and driving forces, but a shared commitment on the basis of the Sami origin. It’s about the struggle to regain a language and love. The artists are Tomas Colbengtson (glass and graphics), Per Elof Monke Nilsson Ricklund (painting), Anders Sunna (painting, collage, etc.) and Sofia Ricklund Lidgren, who want to develop the traditional Sami handicraft.
The exhibition will be displayed at Folkets Hus in Umeå on 22–26 January 2014. ”With activities such as lectures, music, yoik and workshops, we intend to reflect how the artists’ shared commitment takes different forms”, says Gerd Ulander who is the initiator of the exhibition.
