This weekend will see the return of Swedish artist and nightclub impresario André Saraiva, who after three decades of travelling the world has decided to make a long lasting dream come true – to exhibit his art in his home land.
This weekend Swedish artist and nightclub impresario André Saraiva will return to his homeland after three decades of travelling the world. To mark his return the artist will host an exhibition at Gallery Steinsland Berliner, befittingly called Back to Sweden. André Saraiva was born and raised in Uppsala, but has spent his last thirty years in Paris, Tokyo, and New York. The exhibition at Gallery Steinsland Berliner is the first time André Saraiva’s art is displayed in Sweden, something the artist has been dreaming about.
During the last few months the streets of Los Angeles, New York, London, Venice, Paris, and Basel have been covered with posters announcing shows with iconic acts such as Bob Dylan, Blur, Daft Punk, Pulp, and NWA. The posters have been a part of André Saraiva’s dream concerts series, highlighting the synergy between reality and fantasy within the fields of music, art and nightlife. At Gallery Steinsland Berliner the dream concert series will be exhibited along with two sculptures of nightclubs. In connection to the exhibition in Stockholm André Saraiva will also host two pop up club nights with his now notorious Paris night club Le Baron, both in collaboration with Swedish liquor brand ABSOLUT.
The exhibition back to Sweden will on display at Gallery Steinsland Berliner between August the 24th and September the 7th.
