The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation

The swedish royal court gave a press release on 4th February:
A new royal foundation has been formed, Prinsessan Estelles kulturstiftelse (The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation). The purpose of the foundation is to promote cultural activities in Sweden.
With this initiative the crown princess couple wants to emphasize the importance of art and culture to an open and modern society. The Foundation is also based on a strong royal tradition to promote cultural life in Sweden. The crown princess couple wants to actualize this and show long-term ambitions through the founding of Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation.
The executive director is Sara Sandström Nilsson. The foundation's board consists of H.R.H. Prince Daniel, Elin Annwall, Operational Manager of The Crown Princess Couple's Foundation, Lena Josefsson, Chairman of the Friends of the Moderna Museet and Staffan Larsson, Governor of the Royal Palaces. The chairman of the board is Johan Ericsson.
The Board is assisted by an artistic council consisting of Richard Julin, Head of Accelerator in Stockholm, Iris Müller-Westerman, director of Moderna Museet in Malmö and Lars Nittve, former director of the Tate Modern in London, Moderna Museet in Stockholm and M + in Hong Kong.
The Foundation's activities are financed through private donations.

This Foundation was founded already in August 2019, when Sara Sandström Nilsson, the executive director of The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation, was hired. She was 21 years the owner and director of Galleri Andersson/Sandström, which organised the three art exhibitions initiated by prince Daniel at Royal Djurgården in 2016-2018. She ended her work at the gallery in August 2019, and has been the executive director of Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation since then.

The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation is founded to promote cultural activities in Sweden. There is a Royal tradition of supporting Swedish cultural life and a conviction that culture is a necessity for an open and modern society. The Crown Princess couple has a strong commitment to environmental and health issues, so including culture is therefore perfectly natural.
Through the sculpture project at Kungliga Djurgården, the Foundation wants to highlight the importance of art since art experiences have witnessed positive effects, both at the individual level and for society at large. The interaction with contemporary art opens our minds, causes us to reflect, shape new thoughts, give us new knowledge and learn to embrace the unforeseen. Thus, contributing to enriching our common environment with contemporary art is not just about creating timeless monuments, but about awakening conversations and offering long-term quality of life for all.
Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation's activities are mainly financed through private donations. Together, a group of private individuals has built up a base capital and the return on this amount is used to pay the Foundation's ongoing operating costs. The founding group's generous efforts have made possible the existence of the Foundation.

- It is a whole new foundation to which the Crown Princess couple has taken the initiative, says Sara Sandström Nilsson, who is the foundation's executive director.
She continues:
- The idea for the sculpture project at the Royal Djurgården was born when the Crown Princess couple was the patron of Umeå, the European Capital of Culture in 2014. They then visited Umedalen's Sculpture Park which aroused an interest in creating something similar in Stockholm.
The years, 2016-18, were followed by sculpture exhibitions at the Royal Djurgården. Exhibitions that Prince Daniel inaugurated and that the Crown Princess couple wanted to continue with, but in a new form. And the new form became a foundation.
If the parents have informed Princess Estelle about the new foundation, which bears her name, Sara Sandström Nilsson doesn't want to go in. She refers instead to the court. However, she explains that there are long-term ambitions behind the initiative. This is one of the reasons why the foundation is named after Princess Estelle.
The board members consist of Staffan Larsson, Elin Anwall, Sara Sandström Nilsson, Lena Josefsson, Johan Ericsson and Prince Daniel. Victoria is an initiator with not being on the board. Perhaps this is because Daniel is the one who has opened the previous exhibitions and also because the couple already has so many engagements that they have to distribute the engagements, says Sara Sandström Nilsson.

The Swedish court has formed a new foundation - The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation. The foundation's first exhibition will be a temporary sculpture park.
In the summer of 2020, a sculpture exhibition is planned to be shown at Djurgården in Stockholm. The organizer is The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation.
Princess Estelle is Crown Princess Victoria's and Prince Daniel's firstborn. Prince Daniel is a board member of the foundation.
- The hope is that the art experiences will lead to many unexpected conversations and generally increased curiosity for culture, says Sara Sandström Nilsson, the foundation's executive director.
According to Sara Sandström Nilsson, Djurgården is an ideal place because it is open and easy to visit. No entrance fees will be charged.

Children are welcomed to a royal art project
How and why do you introduce contemporary art for children? When this year's sculpture exhibition is held at Djurgården in Stockholm, now in the name of Princess Estelle, a special investment is made aimed at children and young people.
For the past three years, sculpture exhibitions with Tony Cragg, Eva Hild and Jaume Plensa have been arranged along Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen in private direction in collaboration with the Royal Djurgården Administration. The initiative comes from Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, who have now formed Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation to give the summer exhibitions a new long-term view. Even a sculpture park can become a reality in the long run.
- Through this initiative you want to work in your own time. To show contemporary art in these environments is so wonderful because you reach such a large and varied audience, says Sara Sandström Nilsson, the foundation's executive director.
Who exhibits this summer is only revealed in March. New for this year is a commitment to daily guided tours and a conscious effort to make art more accessible to children as well.
- Among other things, we intend that schools not only close to the place but in the whole Sweden should be able to take part in an art pedagogical material so that the teachers can prepare themselves and the school children.
Together with Tekniska Museet, the foundation also works to develop projects where children are given the opportunity to work with various creative projects based on art.
TT: Agnes Lidbeck's debate post in Dagens Nyheter about messy children as disturbing to anyone who wants to see and think about art in museums has attracted criticism. Why is it important for children to see contemporary art?
- We know that contemporary art has positive effects not only on the individual but on society at large. The interaction with contemporary art opens up the senses, raises new thoughts and helps one to embrace the unforeseen. In addition to enriching our common environment, it offers the opportunity for conversation, says Sara Sandström Nilsson.
TT: So kids are not too small to absorb contemporary art?
- Absolutely not, on the contrary, it is very important to feel included in the art world from a young age. I would say that art experiences are a human right.
This year's sculpture exhibition at Djurgården is shown June 7 to September 27.
The Princess Estelle cultural foundation
A royal foundation formed on the initiative of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, whose purpose is to "promote cultural activities in Sweden".

According to the court calendar, Daniel had today a conference call meeting with the Steering group of The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation.
The meeting at the Royal Palace was changed to a conference call meeting due to the Public Health Agency's recommendations due to the corona virus.

The website of Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation has been opened. So far it is only in swedish.

Some of the info at the website:
Background-Future
The idea for the sculpture project at the Royal Djurgården was born when the Crown Princess couple was patron of Umeå, the European Capital of Culture in 2014. They then visited Umedalen's Sculpture Park, which aroused an interest in creating something similar in Stockholm. During the years 2016 - 2018, private exhibitions were carried out with Tony Cragg, Eva Hild and Jaume Plensa in collaboration with Kungl. Djurgården's management.
From 2020, this activity will be organized by the Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation, which was formed in the fall of 2019. Through this project, the foundation wants to contribute to a general increased interest in contemporary art and to strengthen Stockholm's position as an important cultural city in Europe.
Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation will develop and grow organically and dynamically based on the contemporary environment. The focus in the near future is on the temporary sculpture exhibitions at the Royal Djurgården. The idea is that these yearly temporary exhibitions should be supplemented by a permanent part within a number of years. The goal is to create a permanent sculpture park in Stockholm that will be a given visitor destination and a national as well as an international concern.

About the Foundation's first exhibition, the press release has been given out today.

“It is a pleasure to present Alice Aycock's first separate exhibition in Sweden and we hope that her sculptures at the Royal Djurgården will inspire many unexpected people conversations, new thoughts and reflections." Sara Sandström Nilsson, Executive Director Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation
Princess Estelle's Cultural Foundation is closely following the development of the corona pandemic and will adhere to the applicable directives and guidelines. Despite the uncertainty and difficulties, the ambition is to carry out the exhibition as planned.
- In these troubled times, art and culture are needed more than ever. When museums and cultural institutions temporarily shuts down its public operations, and it is difficult to experience culture in any other way than in digital shape, art experiences offered outdoors will be particularly sought after. The hope is that the situation is improving and that many will be able to take part in Alice Aycock's exhibition this summer, says Sara Sandström Nilsson, executive director at Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation

Exhibition at the Royal Djurgården
The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation continues to use the exhibition space below Tekniska Museet and Rosendal Palace which has been incorporated since the sculpture project was started in 2016. The location is now, if possible, even more optimal with Folke Bernadotte's bridge inaugurated in September 2019, which means it will be even easier for visitors to get between the different sculptures that are located on either side of the water. The footpath along the Djurgård Canal is visited by nearly 15 million people annually and is one of Sweden's most visited places.
The exhibition period is planned for June 7 - September 27.

Article at Di Weekend

An art icon swirls into Djurgården
Huge sculptures by American artist Alice Aycock are displayed at Djurgården this summer. Behind the initiative are Prince Daniel and art expert Sara Sandström Nilsson.
In recent years, Djurgården has been transformed into a sculpture park during the summer months. The artists Tony Cragg, Eva Hild and Jaume Plensa have all been exhibited in large formats along Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen. The grip has been appreciated by both the passers-by and the artists. Djurgården is one of Stockholm's most visited parks.
Now in the summer, American sculptor Alice Aycock's works come to town and a royal foundation, Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation, has been formed for its implementation. Prince Daniel and Crown Princess Victoria are the initiators of the foundation. The foundation is funded by private donations, but those who donate are not public.
- There is a royal tradition of supporting cultural life and we are convinced that art and culture are a necessity in an open and modern society, says Prince Daniel.
It will be Alice Aycock's first major solo exhibition in Scandinavia. Six large sculptures are on display. The artist tells Di Weekend that she was attracted by Djurgården's "beautiful environment". She visited Stockholm last fall at the invitation of the foundation.
- The sculptures we have chosen are about movements that are often invisible, like the movements of the wind and the water. By putting them outdoors, they will have a conversation with the surrounding nature, says Alice Aycock.
A lunch with the prince at Haga Palace, Moderna museet, Rosendal's garden and a closed Gröna Lund were included in the Stockholm visit.
- Alice Aycock visited Stockholm during those September days when the sun was gassing and the dahlias were still blooming in Rosendal's garden. It was like a tourist movie, says the foundation's executive director Sara Sandström Nilsson, who previously ran the gallery Andersson Sandström.
The large white swirling aluminum sculptures which will be on display at Djurgården were manufactured as late as 2017. The art has been linked to climate change and extreme weather as they bring the thoughts to hurricanes.
Executive director Sara Sandström Nilsson is relieved that the artworks that exist in the US are already on a boat across the Atlantic.
- Given the corona virus, there has been a certain level of concern. But they are packaged and are on a boat, says Sara Sandström Nilsson.
Despite the current uncertainty, the ambition is to carry out the exhibition at Djurgården.
- In these troubled times, art and culture are needed more than ever. When museums and cultural institutions close, we believe that outdoor art experiences are particularly sought after, says Sara Sandström Nilsson.

Monumental sculptures at a royal exhibition
Large sculptures signed by American artist Alice Aycock will be exhibited at Djurgården in Stockholm this summer.
The exhibition is organized by Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation, which was created on the initiative of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel.
Six sculptures from Alice Aycock's series "Turbulences", previously shown along Park Lane in New York, will be exhibited at Djurgården. Inspiration for the works has been taken from extreme weather conditions.
