Wednesday April 1: Guided tour in English. 17.30.
An exhibition about the modernist from Lund, Bernt Nyberg´s (1927 –1978) threatened buildings, which originates from the American Architect Matthew Hall´s research project on the ground-breaking accomplishments of Nyberg. Today, Nyberg´s buildings are internationally acclaimed, but are sadly not as reputable in Lund, the very city where he started his Architect Office and where several of his buildings were erected. In connection with the exhibition, Skissernas Museum will be issuing a catalogue in collaboration with the School of Architecture in Copenhagen and the Architect and Design Centre in Stockholm
Skissernas Museum – Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art was founded in 1934 by Ragnar Josephson (1891-1966), during his time as Professor of Art History at the University of Lund (Sweden). The intention was to establish an archive of the creative process, or the path of the artist from the first idea to the finished work. The aim was to collect sketches, models and photographs to Public Art – as the study material relating to it was especially suited, by the frequent demand on abundant preliminary sketches.
