Tilted Arc, “Siri Berg”

Interview with Richard Benari, March 7, 2014
Siri berg made her way into New York’s art world much the same way she made her way to New York: solo. Born in Stockholm and educated in Brussels, she left for New York when she was just 19. That was in 1940, when Europe was a darker place and travel wasn’t, by any stretch, easy. It took 28 days to make the trip by freighter.

 “Siri Berg at VOLTA NY”

Artillery, March 3, 2014
The veteran color theorist has a four decade-plus career, including works in the permanent collections of institutions like the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York) and the Moderna Museet (Stockholm). Berg is equally versatile in sublime color spectrums and cerebral black and white, as evinced in a selection of vintage and current works on view at VOLTA NY.

Studio Visit: Siri Berg in New York

FAD, Clementine Kitty, Sept. 19, 2012
On entering the home and studio of Siri Berg I am welcomed by the artist, a petite, radiant woman. Softly spoken and elegant she stands in front of a selection of her life’s work that adorn the walls. One is immediately struck by a sense of calm order and organisation. She invites me to sit and we begin an intimate and fascinating discussion of her life and work.

Siri Berg: TechnoFemme

NYARTS, Rachel Sommerstein
When Swedish-born artist Siri Berg started making assemblage pieces out of discarded industrial parts — technological trash — "everyone was speaking of the damage that we do to the environment."  But Berg, whose background is in design, was attracted to the objects’ geometric simplicity.

Interview with Guy Clark for True Swedish

Throwing herself into the unknown seems to be a bit what artist Siri Berg is all about. She was born in Stockholm to a German father and a Polish mother, but left Sweden when still a teenager, all alone. Though her mother didn’t much like the thought of young Siri crossing the ocean, the political situation worked in Berg’s favor. She left Sweden via a ship from Norway to Baltimore—a journey that at the time took 28 days.


Black & White 1976-1981: Redux 2012 Video
Interview with Peter Hionas

Hionas Gallery has partnered with celebrated Swedish-born abstractionist Siri Berg to stage a redux of the artist's momentous solo show, Black & White 1976- 1981, which originally exhibited at the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia, March 6 -- May 31, 1986. 
Known primarily as a master colorist, Berg's 1986 Black & White represented a major departure from her oeuvre. In this series of monochrome black and white paintings and assemblage, the artist abandons pure color in place of pure shade, resulting in one of the twentieth-century's most stunning collections of minimalist and geometric abstraction.
