Joan Miró – The Poetry of Everyday Life

February 11 – June 10, 2017

This spring, an extensive exhibition with works by Joan Miró (1893 – 1983), one of the most noted artists of the 20th century, will be shown. The comprehensive presentation will feature poetical and visionary paintings, sculpture, drawings and textile works, all chosen with the aim to show the artist’s creative process. The exhibition offers a unique opportunity to study how the artist was inspired by everyday objects in his work. Miró’s social commitment is expressed through his notable original posters and in the experimental video, in which Miró is seen creating street art in Barcelona in the late 1960s. The exhibition has been made in collaboration with Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona and the art gallery Kristianstads konsthall. Read more about Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona

Nordic Art 1880–1940 – Highligts from Prince Eugen´s Collection

June 22 – August 27, 2017

This summer’s extensive exhibition of Nordic art from the period 1880 – 1940 gives visitors the opportunity to see some truly important works in the Museum’s collection.  From the 19th-century plein-air painting, mood painting and Symbolism, the presentation moves on to the formal and colour experiments of early Modernism. Paintings, sculptures and crafts from this expansive phase in Swedish and Scandinavian art history are shown in dialogue with exquisitely sensual floral arrangements, with flowers and other plants from the Museum’s own park and garden. A totality is thus created, referencing Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde – the total work of art designed by the landscape painter Prince Eugen (1865-1947) in the early 20th century. The exhibition is complemented by an audio guide in Swedish and English, with information about the history behind Prince Eugen’s fine art collection and a selection of the featured works.

Swedish Modernism – André Lhote and His Students

September 16, 2017 – January 21, 2018

Many Swedish artists studied under the French cubist André Lhote (1885-1962). This exhibition is the first to focus on the extensive but unknown teacher-student relationships that began in the early 1910s between Lhote and his first Swedish students, Georg Pauli and Prince Eugen. In the ensuing five decades, Pauli and Eugen were followed by several generations of Swedish students; some 80 of these are featured in this presentation, including Siri Derkert, Olle Bærtling, Philip von Schantz, and Elsa Danson Våghals.  Works by Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay and other artists are also shown in the exhibition.

Annika Ekdahl – Woven Image Worlds

October 14, 2017 – February 11, 2018

In magnificent tapestries, Annika Ekdahl (b. 1955) – one of our finest Nordic textile artists – imbues a historical textile genre with new vibrancy. Ekdahl’s technically complex works are created in a late-mediaeval tapestry method, but depict the artist’s observations of contemporary life. Her colourful, lyrical and detailed tapestries often centre on humanity, but flora and fauna are included in the scenes. Many of her monumental textile works are spread around Sweden and the Nordic countries, in public collections and environments, and this exhibition a unique opportunity to see more of her impressive oeuvre in one place.
