The curatorial team for the Moderna Exhibition 2018

In 2018, it is once again time for the Moderna Exhibition – our quadrennial survey of the Swedish art scene. This time, the assignment goes to Joa Ljungberg, Santiago Mostyn and Lawen Mohtadi, who will research Swedish contemporary art and present their findings in an exhibition that opens at the museum in autumn 2018.

“We are looking forward to the 2018 edition of the Moderna Exhibition, which will give us new perspectives on Swedish art today,” say Daniel Birnbaum, director, and Ann-Sofi Noring, co-director of Moderna Museet.

”Every four years, Moderna Museet highlights the most interesting and characteristic oeuvres on the contemporary art scene. It is with great expectations that we now hand over this assignment to the Museum’s curator Joa Ljungberg, in association with the editor and author Lawen Mohtadi and the artist Santiago Mostyn. What is essential to Swedish art today, and how can we understand the contemporary regional and national perspectives? These are a few key issues of our time that the curatorial team will try to answer,” say Daniel Birnbaum, director, and Ann-Sofi Noring, co-director of Moderna Museet

The Moderna Exhibition 2018 will be the 4th edition of the event. Previous editions opened in 2006, 2010 and 2014.
