On site in Malmö!

Elisabeth Millqvist is Moderna Museet Malmö’s new Museum Director. Elisabeth comes most recently from Wanås Konst, where she has been operations manager and artistic director since 2011.

– It is inspiring to meet the visitors and get to know employees, says Elisabeth Millqvist. It has always been central to me to work closely with artists and support new projects. In parallel, I have focused on building a strong art educational function – both are important parts of Moderna Museet’s DNA. In Malmö, the museum has been part of the art scene for 12 years and is still being shaped both by the city, the art life and employees. The museum is in a dynamic phase and I am proud to be trusted to join and lead the development of this stimulating place for people and art.

Elisabeth Millqvist succeeds Iris Müller-Westermann, who held the position since 1 January 2017 and whose appointment has been extended in two rounds. Müller-Westermann continues as curator at Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
