Arkdes' Sigurd Lewerentz, Architect of Death and Life opens this Friday. The comprehensive exhibition has been curated by Kieran Long, Johan Örn and Lena Landerberg, and designed by Caruso St John.
The exhibition Sigurd Lewerentz: Architect of Death and Life opens in October at ArkDes, Stockholm. To mark the occasion Gagosian director Mark Francis spoke with Adam Caruso, Kieran Long, director of ArkDes, and Swedish arts critic Anna Nittve. They discussed the extent of the exhibition's research and design, as well as the enduring legacy of Lewerentz. The interview features in the Fall 2021 edition of Gagosian Magazine.
Published this month is Sigurd Lewerentz, Architect of Death and Life. The monograph covers both his built and unrealised designs; from retail spaces, churches, cemeteries and landscapes, to exhibition architecture, graphics, product design, furniture and interiors.
The comprehensive book coincides with ArkDes' exhibition of the same name. Caruso St John has designed the exhibition, which opens in October this year.
