Hilma af Klint

Artist, Researcher, Medium

14.4 – 27.9 2020

Malmö

Opens in 16 days

During the spring and summer of 2020, Moderna Museet Malmö will give its visitors an opportunity to become acquainted with the fascinating and ground-breaking Swedish artist Hilma af Klint in a comprehensive presentation. The exhibition will present, among other works, the series “The Ten Largest,” which will be shown in it’s entirety.

In 2013, Moderna Museet presented ”Hilma af Klint: Abstract Pioneer”, which became the most visited exhibition of a Swedish artist in the museum’s history. Since then, Hilma af Klint’s work has traveled the world, encountered new audiences, and won new recognition, most recently at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Starting on April 14, 2020, a new and comprehensive exhibition with Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) will be on view at Moderna Museet Malmö. The exhibition will include “The Ten Largest”—ten paintings from 1907 in a monumental format and with a color palette that challenged the dominant canon of the day.

The exhibition will feature further works from the series “The Paintings for the Temple” as well as a selection that examines the artist’s research into the natural world and how the visible and invisible worlds are connected. In addition, the extensive exhibition touches on the artist’s own thoughts about her work and its various methods.

In conjunction with the exhibition, a comprehensive catalog will be produced.

Curators: Iris Müller-Westermann and Milena Høgsberg.
