Tony Schwensen is included in the exhibition Swedish for Argument at the UTS Gallery, Sydney from 23rd October — 23rd November 2012.
In an age where one in 10 Europeans is conceived in a IKEA bed, it is hardly surprising that the pervasive influence of this flatpack giant has found its way into the visual arts. Swedish for Argument uses IKEA as a departure point to examine ideas of production, ownership, ubiquity and need.
Swedish for Argument includes existing and commissioned works by international and Australian artists. The exhibition will be accompanied by a talks series, an IKEA Recovery Workshop and a small publication. Curated by Holly Williams.
