SKISSERNAS MUSEUM 80 YEARS!

2014-10-25 - 2015-04-06

During the past 80 years, the creative process and public art have been the focus at Skissernas museum. In connection with the Jubilee, the museum reflects on the importance of the collections and its history, through an installation of sketches and archival material covering eight decades. The extensive material reveals the museum’s significant role as a national and international resource for discussions on art in public space. The timeline with press cuttings, photographs, film and audio illustrates both major and minor events through the years, at the same time as the wide-ranging exhibition activities are reflected in the cavalcade of posters. The display on the tables consists of letters, journal entries and travel accounts, written in relation to the acquisition of artworks from all over the world. A slideshow presents documentary photographic material from the museum archives.
