The major exhibition for the spring and summer highlights the architect Sigurd Lewerentz and some of his most famous buildings. His work has inspired Petra Gipp to created a new sculptural work for the exhibition.
This summer, Erika Lagerbielke’s sketches for the glass art piece Hopp (Hope) will be exhibited in The Arcade Gallery. The art piece in glass is placed in the window above the altar in the crypt of Lund Cathedral. It was inaugurated earlier this year in connection to the 900-year anniversary of the altar.
You can enjoy the art in The Sculpture Park whenever you want to. The park features international and Swedish art created for the space as well as replicas of works which are displayed elsewhere.
The International Gallery presents a selection of permanent and temporary projects from the end of the 1800s until today. Here you can discover unique sketches by artists such as Henri Matisse, Sonia Delaunay, Jenny Holzer and Fernand Léger.
The museum has one of Europe's foremost collections of sketches by Mexican monumental painters such as Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros.
In The Swedish Gallery, you can take part of sketches for public works of art in Sweden from the first years of the 20th century until today. Works by Sigrid Hjertén, Isaac Grünewald and Siri Derkert and contemporary artists such as Linn Fernström, Carolina Falkholt and Matthias van Arkel are shown here.
Sketches provide an insight into the artistic process, how ideas are explored and how works of art take shape. Here you can follow several artists in their process, from inspiration and early idea to finished work.
Which people and events are represented in our shared spaces and which narratives have been left out? These rooms contain sketches and models for monuments, memorials and memorial sites from the early 1900s to the present day.
