Lunds Konsthall (Art Gallery, Lund, Sweden) was inaugurated in 1957 and celebrates its 60 years in 2017. The modernist building was designed by the Swedish architect Klas Anshelm.
Lunds Konsthall is a significant international contemporary art venue achieved with exhibitions and other events of high international standards, featuring art from the nearby region as well as from the rest of the world, continually engaging in research and experimentation with new exhibition formats. The city of Lund being home to Scandinavia’s largest university and the concentration of highly educated inhabitants makes it an interesting environment for exhibiting contemporary art.
The program is characterized by generosity, openness and clarity. Lectures, discussions and conferences are continuously organized in collaboration with experts from various fields, not least the academic world. Engaging both established and less-known artists, the exhibitions are normally produced by Lunds Konsthall and often curated by invited external curators to promote different voices in the art world.
Lunds Konsthall is also responsible for the City of Lund Art Collection. Acquisitions to the collection are made by a reference group consisting of the Director and elected politicians, as well as being in charge of producing public art projects for new buildings financed by the City of Lund.
Entrance is free to all exhibitions and interpretative events at Lunds Konsthall.
