Moderna Museet Malmö opening 26 December
Moderna Museet is one of Europe’s leading museums of modern and contemporary art, with a collection of high international standing. Malmö has one of the most beautiful exhibition spaces in Sweden. An inquiry came from the City of Malmö if Moderna Museet would open a subsidiary in the building on Gasverksgatan 22. In a unique collaboration with the City of Malmö, Region Skåne and the Swedish government, Moderna Museet Malmö will now be inaugurated on December 26 2009.
A modern art museum of this standing in Malmö will be a meeting place and an attraction that will benefit not only the region of Skåne and southern Sweden, but also Denmark and northern Germany. Moderna Museet is the only museum north of Amsterdam with an international collection covering the entire 20th century. In consequence, Moderna Museet Malmö will offer an art experience that is unique for the Öresund region.
With an independent exhibition programme, in collaboration with Moderna Museet and its own international contacts, this high-quality museum will show contemporary art’s most important artists and modern classics alternated with a selection from Moderna Museet’s rich collection from 1900 and onwards. Moderna Museet Malmö will develop an exciting new learning programme all year round.
Welcome to Gasverksgatan 22 for exciting art experiences!
Moderna Museet Malmö is a part of state-owned Moderna Museet, with support from City of Malmö and Region Skåne. Main sponsor for Moderna Museet Malmö is E.ON Sweden.
