HM The King has taken the initiative for the exhibition “Look at the rugs – find me” to mark one hundred years since the artist Märta Måås-Fjetterström opened her workshop in Båstad. The exhibition will be held in the Hall of State at the Royal Palace in Stockholm between 13 October 2019 and 19 April 2020.
Märta Måås-Fjetterström was a pioneer and an innovator. She was inspired by the rich history of textiles, but she always looked to the future and her creativity was not constrained by traditions, conventions or national borders. Måås-Fjetterström is part of the history of design, but has not been consigned to the history books. What was seen as modern and original a century ago remains fashionable today. Måås-Fjetterström’s work is currently enjoying a well-deserved renaissance and renewed artistic success, adorning new floors around the world.
The title of the exhibition is taken from Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s own words. When asked to describe her artistry, she said: “Look at the rugs – find me”. It was her rugs that spoke so expressively about who she was, and that showcased her skill with both colour and design.
The exhibition will be held in The Hall of State at The Royal Palace between 13 October 2019 and 19 April 2020.
