Widell Projects

With a background as a curator of the Swedish crafts gallery Blås & Knåda, Boel Widell Henrikson founded Widell Projects in 2015.

It is a Stockholm-based forum for Swedish contemporary craft working with fairs, exhibitions and other projects. For Collect 2018 Widell Projects will present artists working in ceramics, glass and - for the first time - textiles. Some of the artists are new to the fair, others have been shown in previous years. It will be an interesting mixture of different materials, techniques, expressions - in short, a good selection of Swedish craft. One of the artists, Ulla Forsell, was among the first in Sweden to start her own glass studio. All participating artists have years of experience in exhibitions and public commissions and can be seen in many collections, both public and private, in Sweden as well as abroad.
