‘A World of Feathers’, the successful exhibition that was previously on display in the Museum of Ethnology in Leiden, the Africa Museum in Berg en Dal and the Museum of World Cultures in Gothenburg, will be on show at the Ethnographic Museum in Stockholm from 6 October.
The flexible design of this traveling exhibition, designed by Kossmann.dejong exhibition architects, is an example of sustainable exhibition design. Existing parts – such as a huge bird cage and a haute couture catwalk – can easily be fitted into a new set-up at the Ethnographic Museum in Stockholm. The addition of specific Swedish elements ensures local connection and recognition with the Swedish public. For example, cooperation with Swedish plumemaker Tim Mårtenson has been sought, and there is work shown by students from the Swedish School of Textiles and the Academy of Design and Crafts. Special pieces from the collection of Swedish museums have also been included in the exhibition. Truly a world full of feathers, in a new jacket, but with the same narrative and enchanting power.
‘A World of Feathers’ from 6 October 2018 to 3 March 2019 at the Ethnographic Museum in Stockholm. Free entrance.
