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. 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.

Film about the Pontus Hultén Study Gallery

Se en 13 minuter lång film om hur Visningsmagasinet används till en rad olika aktiviteter; utställningar, forskning, samtal, performance och seminarier.

I filmen möter vi, till toner av Sarah Riedel med ensemble, individer som på olika sätt har med platsen att göra. Vi träffar Renzo Piano, arkitekten som ritade magasinet och som var Pontus Hulténs nära vän. Moderna Museets chef Daniel Birnbaum delger sina visioner både om platsen i sig och om museet i stort. Andra medverkande är Anna Tellgren, intendent och forskningsledare på Moderna Museet, Björns Springfeldt, kollega och vän till Pontus Hultén, Camilla Hjelm, lektor och forskare vid Stockholms Universitet.
