Elliott Erwitt 100+1
6 december, 2013 — 2 march, 2014
This weekend is the last chance to se the fantastic Elliott Erwitt exhibition at Fotografiska. A unique opportunity for visitors to acquaint themselves with one of the world’s most acclaimed photographers and see what he has captured. So far.
Elliott Erwitt is the photographer who notices details that most people miss, situations before they occur. “There is really nothing mysterious about photography”, Elliott explains. “It’s about observing. Often it’s a matter of luck and circumstance. Hopefully I haven’t taken my best picture yet.”

Roxette, Eva Dahlgren, ABBA, Monica Zetterlund and Cornelis Vreeswijk are among the first Swedish music legends to be honoured in the Swedish Music Hall of Fame.
The first Swedish performers to be inducted into the Swedish Music Hall of Fame have been announced. Jury president Jan Gradvall said the 12 outstanding groups and performers had all made lasting contributions to Swedish music. The Hall of Fame exhibition will open in the Swedish Music Hall of Fame on Djurgården in Stockholm on March 20.
￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼The inaugural inductees are:
ABBA, Jan Johansson, Roxette, Eva Dahlgren, The Latin Kings, Evert Taube, Ebba Grön, Nationalteatern, Cornelis Vreeswijk, Entombed, Stina Nordenstam, Monica Zetterlund
“I am pleased and proud, and see this as a recognition of the uncompromising nature of writing,” says Eva Dahlgren. “That inspires me. I hope it can also inspire others.”
The twelve performers and groups inducted into the Hall of Fame have all had major influence over the development of popular music in Sweden. All inductees must have launched their first albums at least 20 years ago – which means those inducted into the Hall of Fame for 2014 had all started their careers by 1994 at the latest. Induction is not just recognition for the performers, but is also intended to build bridges between generations. All genres of music are treated equally. The choice of the inaugural inductees as a whole, illustrates the variety that Swedish popular music represents.
The Swedish Music Hall of Fame has been created on Djurgården in Stockholm to make Swedish music history available to everyone.

“You can try to take away my colors but you can never take away my pride” Efva Attling.
Rainbow Freedom – New jewelry by Efva Attling
The inspiration for the pendant came after the women’s high jump world championship in Moscow last year when Emma Green Tregaro painted her nails in the colors of the rainbow flag as a protest to Russia’s anti gay laws. On the day of the finals, however, the Swedish athletes association forced her to take the rainbow nail polish away. “You can try to take away my colors but you can never take away my pride!” Attling thought and designed a jewelry with the name of the colors stamped in metal.
Of each sold jewelry, a part of the proceeds go to Pride ‘s work to support Pride festivals outside Sweden.
Peter Rimsby, president of Stockholm Pride :
“As president of Stockholm Pride, I am honored that Efva Attling choose to support our solidarity fund. Today, the struggle for LGBT person’s rights internationally is perhaps more current than ever and therefore I am glad that Efva has decided to donate part of the proceeds from her jewelry to our work to support Pride festivals outside Sweden.”

Efva Attling is the leading jewelry designer in Scandinavia and one of Swedens most sought-after designers. Her jewelry has already become the preference of stars like Meryl Streep, Madonna, Uma Thurman and Grace Jones.
