Shifting Landscapes - Sharing the Lund University Art Collection

2015-04-24 - 2015-08-02

The Lund University Art Collection can be described as the University’s visual memory. As is the case for many universities with large collections, mainly in the Anglo-American world, the purpose of the collection has been to encourage students’ understanding of art and its role in society through direct engagement with works of art. In this exhibition, a selection of works from the collection, ranging from the fifteenth century to our time, is made accessible to the public for the first time in a very long period. The selection reflects the scope of the collection, but also its focus on Swedish art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as well as seventeenth-century Dutch painting.

Endangered Architecture: The Work of Bernt Nyberg

2015-03-26 - prel. 2015-06-07

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



Lina Selander (b. 1973) is one of Swedens´most innovative artists within the field of moving images. She has produced several public works using light, audio and video. An example of her work is now presented at Skissernas Museum – A Small Monument over Affinity and Creative Community a video installation for Slättgårdsskolan in Bredäng, Stockholm (2012) . Lina Selander will be representing Sweden at the Biennale in Venice in 2015.

Lina Selander is a current artist with Mehr Licht! the over nine hour long installation on the facade of MAX 1V Laboratory at Lund University, which was inaugurated in spring 2015. With the aid of 1 500 blinking led lamps the large 15×9m work will demonstrate the history of light, perception and moving images. Mehr Licht! relates to the activities in the building, which will be the world´s most modern research facility for synchronized light.
