Malmö Art Hall and galleries, Malmö
I have not yet been, but the famous Stockholm contemporary art museum Moderna (the "Modern" museum) opened an annex in Malmö 2010. The museum is housed in a former gas works so the building itself is interesting, and previously housed the Rooseum art collection so art seems to have established itself here. The famous Rauschenberg angora goat which long attracted the crowds in Stockholm is now here, and works by Picasso and Matisse are only a few exemples of the collections here. The museum also has a shop and a café, and as most museums in Scandinavia, it is closed Mondays.
The Art Hall ("Konsthall") hosts several interesting exhibitions every year and what is also fun is that its interior can change to reflect whatever is exhibited. They also often let children participate and make exhibitions for the whole family. Has a nice restaurant too (see tip).
EnFormSak is a small art-gallery situated in the middle of Malmö city. It´s free of charge to visit, and the great thing about this particular gallery is that they often choose to show young, rather unknown (and often local aswell) artist. Although paintings is probably the most common thing exhibited at EnFormSak, they also often show architecture & different types of handicrafts.
So if you´re in the centre of Malmö - make sure to stop by this place and have a look!
One of the biggest art-exhibitions in Malmö is Malmö Konsthall. It opened in 1975, and It´s totally free of charge to visit.
The exhibitionhall hostes different artist from time to time...sometime local artists, and sometime worldfamous ones.
Be sure to visit Malmö konsthalls bookshop - located in the same building as the exhibition-hall. They have a excellent assortment of art-books, posters & postcards. Next to the bookshop is also a small & cosy café.
