The solo exhibition of the American artist Robert Longo (b. 1953) in the Sara Hildén Art Museum is the first extensive presentation of his works in the Nordic countries.

The black-and-white visual world of the American artist Robert Longo challenges our conception of the Truth. It produces unexpected analogies between content and form. The main focus of the exhibition Robert Longo, presented by the Sara Hildén Art Museum, is on Longo’s large-scale charcoal drawings. He has said that he is an “image thief", who exploits films, historically significant paintings, and the continuous stream of media pictures in his work, seeking to create a balance between the highly personal and the socially relevant.
