The Pontus Hultén Study Gallery
The Study Gallery shows some of the donations that have come into Moderna Museet’s possession on specially built display screens. These mobile screens are designed according to a concept devised by Pontus Hultén in collaboration with the architect Renzo Piano. Hultén was Director of Moderna Museet from 1959 to 1972. In his will he left his art collection, book collection and archive to Moderna Museet. The public can view parts of the material in the Study Gallery. It is used for seminars and research visits and the Study Gallery also hosts smaller format temporary exhibitions.
The Pontus Hultén Study Gallery was created with support from The Friends of Moderna Museet
Paul Thek, in Process (Stockholm)
Opening 22 March 2013 at 5 pm
Paul Thek, in Process is an archive exhibition in the Pontus Hultén Study Gallery, curated by Susanne Neubauer. It features Paul Thek’s oeuvre, based on correspondence and photo documentation from the Pyramid/A Work in Progress exhibition at Moderna Museet in 1971–72. In the 1960s and ’70s, Paul Thek (1933–1988) was active in Europe, where his work was acknowledged and shown by curators such as Harald Szeeman, Christophe Amman and Pontus Hultén.
The exhibition Paul Thek, in Process is a series of separate events whose outcome forms the starting point for the next event. It has been shown at the Wilhelm Lehmbruck KM Museum, Duisburg, Germany, and Kunstmuseum Lucerne, Switzerland, before making its last stop at Moderna Museet – three museums where Paul Thek’s work also took place and was shown 40 years ago.
