Nobel Week Lights, an outdoor festival for illuminated art, was launched last year during the Nobel Week in Stockholm. This year, four works will be installed on Skeppsholmen. Join us for a guided tour of art around the island; on the Skeppsholmen bridge, in the water, at Östasiatiska museet and, of course, here at Moderna Museet.
Like before, this year’s works are associated in some way with achievements in the fields covered by the Nobel Prize. Moderna Museet’s contribution to the festival is Ragnar Kjartansson’s work “Scandinavian Pain” (2006–2012), a nod to the Nobel Prize in Literature, and especially the generation of writers who were active when the Nobel Prize was first instituted. But also later Nobel Prize laureates in literature, including the author and member of the Swedish Academy, Pär Lagerkvist.
On the guided tour, you will also see and learn more about works by the artists Simon Hagegård, Henric Strömberg and Ivan Wahren (“Supernova”), Cecilia Ömalm (“B12”) and Alexander Salvesen (“Sender-Receiver”).
