The Pontus Hultén Study Gallery

The Pontus Hultén Study Gallery is a venue for all sorts of events and activities. It is used for seminars, visiting researchers, happenings, discussions and events.

The Study Gallery hosts smaller exhibitions and works donated to the museum

When the Study Gallery is open you can view a selection of the works of art that were donated to Moderna Museet in 2005 by its first director, Pontus Hultén, along with other selected works donated to the museum. The objects are mounted on screens in a system that Hultén commissioned the Italian architect Renzo Piano to design. The Study Gallery also hosts smaller exhibitions of archive material and objects from the collection.

The Study Gallery is open for research

Moderna Museet’s assignment includes conducting research, promoting understanding and interest in the field of modern and contemporary art, and the scholarly processing of the Museum’s collection. Researchers are welcome on Thursdays. During re-hangings or other periods when the study gallery is closed, researchers are received in the art library on Skeppsholmen, after an appointment through the museum’s archive manager.
