Discover more about Herman Lohe’s work and practice within a space filled with his art, in a discussion led by curator Roberto Ekholm at Fiumano Clase, along with the gallery directors Francesca Fiumano and Andrés Clase. The discussion will consider Lohe’s practice in the broader context of Scandinavian landscape painting and in the current London contemporary art scene, and how Lohe’s work fits in the oeuvre of other Scandinavian artists of the past and working today.
In 2018, Ekholm explored contemporary artists’ relationships to landscape in an exhibition entitled Sweep~Landskip, held in Stavanger, Norway. Ekholm featured Lohe’s work in dialogue with eleven other artists and he will also discuss this encounter of contemporary landscape art in the talk.

Roberto Ekholm’s fee has been donated to Reverse Rett, a charity dedicated to changing the lives of children and adults with Rett Syndrome. Rett syndrome is a neurological disorder that affects 1 in 10-15,000, mainly girls, and develops at 18-24 months. It leads to severe communication, motor and anxiety disorders. Gene therapy trials are in the early stages but further funding is needed to find a cure. Ekholm is currently conducting fundraising activities for the charity and would be happy to give information about the charity on the day of the talk.
