Current and upcoming exhibitions
17 September 2016 – 22 January 2017
Inspired by the French salon style of painting, Julius Kronberg and a few Swedish artists who were active at around the same time produced impressively monumental paintings with compelling narrative subject matter. With this pioneering exhibition, we present Swedish salon painting in a new light, and ask in what way it can be relevant to viewers today. In addition to Julius Kronberg, the exhibition features paintings by other artists, including Hugo Birger, Jenny Nyström, Anders Zorn, Fanny Brate, Carl Larsson, Hugo Salmson and Mårten Eskil Winge.
Cecilia Edefalk – Dandelion
15 October 2016 – 12 February 2017
Cecilia Edefalk’s recent works revolve around the life cycle and human living conditions. Although bearing a close kinship to her previous works, they also signal the starting point for something new, in their exploration of a state, of reincarnation, and contemplations of an another reality. This comprehensive retrospective features Cecilia Edefalk’s paintings, photographs and sculptures from the 1980s to today.
