I feel very privileged to live in a city that always has so much to offer in terms of Art and Culture. Stockholm has a multitude of Museums and private Art Galleries, As summer comes to an end, all the exhibitions will come to a close with new ones signalling the start of the Autumn season. Here is a little round up of the ones I managed to catch this summer, still time to get to some of them before they end. For me the highlight was the spectacular Yayoi Kusama retrospective, In Infinity, at Moderna Museet. Her Infinity Mirrored Rooms have always been a favourite.
