The American Swedish Institute kicks off its 2018 schedule with a new series of exhibitions under the rubric of the handmade. It begins with “CraftBowl,” in which the works of three Swedish master craftspeople—Jögge Sundqvist (wood), Ingegerd Råman (ceramics and glass), and Bertil Vallien (glass)—have been collected in installations that go far beyond simple object displays. During the opening event, in fact, Sundqvist will do his signature “wood, sweat, and woodchips” performance to rock music. The party also includes music by Chris Koza, along with pop-up demonstrations and activities galore. The reception runs from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, January 19.
