The Pontus Hultén Study Gallery is a venue for all sorts of events and activities. It is used for seminars, visiting researchers, happenings, discussions and events. When the Study Gallery is open you can view a selection of the works of art that were donated to Moderna Museet in 2005 by its first director, Pontus Hultén, along with other selected works donated to the museum. The objects are mounted on screens in a system that Hultén commissioned the Italian architect Renzo Piano to design. The Study Gallery also hosts smaller exhibitions of archive material and objects from the collection.
The Pontus Hultén Study Gallery was created with support from The Friends of Moderna Museet
