During the French state visit, HM the Queen and Ms Brigitte Macron came to Moderna Museet on Tuesday, 30 January . They participated in a seminar and studied works from our collection. Also, they had the opportunity to meet young creatives from Botkyrka.

The seminar, on how to strengthen exchanges in the fields of fine art and performing arts, with a special focus on regional development, and how to reach younger audiences, was organised jointly by the Swedish Institute and Institut français, together with the French Embassy and Moderna Museet.

On site, the Queen and Ms Macron were invited to meet creative young people from Botkyrka Municipality in the Workshop, and to view our current presentations of the collection.

During their visit, a first-ever declaration of intent was signed with the purpose of extending exchanges between France and Sweden in the fields of performing arts and contemporary art.
