Last year, Sweden tragically lost the writer and professor Sara Danius to cancer. A big part of Danius’ visual presence in the public mind was the dresses she wore to Nobel Gala ceremonies, and that’s what this exhibition at Nationalmuseum takes in. It focuses on the interaction between designer Pär Engsheden and Danius in the creation of the dresses, and goes deep into the question of how fashion and other arts interact. Engsheden, who currently runs the fashion department at Beckmans Design School, has put together the exhibition with Danius’ family.
