The exhibition is extended until August 1. Open Wednesday July 31 and August 1 between 2–6 pm!
This exhibition is a personal selection of works that all formally resemble the portrait. Some of them are made as portraits of specific people, while others merely use the human face as a means of expression. Common to all drawings, paintings and sculptures is that the depicted a person is the main motif of the work. The oldest artwork in the exhibition dates from the 17th century, the last one was finished only a few weeks ago.
Vi har glädjen att bjuda in till en gemensam visning av fyra utställningar på gallerierna i Konstakademiens hus. Konstnärerna berättar om sina respektive utställningar.

2017 is the 30-year anniversary of the Beckers Art Award. This will be presented in a commemorative exhibition where all former winners of the award will participate alongside with this year’s winner, Anna Camner. Beckers Art award was established in 1987 and has since then proven to have a remarkable ability to identify young talent on the brink of a breakthrough in their careers. The winner is awarded a grant, which from this year has been raised from 150 000 to 200 000 SEK, and a solo exhibition that has, since 2001, been arranged and held in collaboration with Färgfabriken.
One day, I found a small painting by the shamefully underappreciated artist Lennart Rohde at an online auction. This painting caught my attention. Upon seeing this combination of information, which had so obviously not been tested for functionality. I doubled over with laughter and found the title to this exhibition. Ej funktionstestad (Untested).
We have the pleasure to present Spotlight #2, a short group exhibition where we introduce current works by a selection of the gallery artists. We would also like to take this opportunity to welcome two new artists to the gallery; Bella Rune and Idun Baltzersen.
Actualities is a joint exhibition of work by author Lena Andersson and artist Dan Wolgers, arranged in cooperation with Spritmuseum and the Absolut Art Collection. Working in close collaboration, they have brought together words and images to enrich one another, each placing their skills in the service of the other. At first glance, they might be mistaken for each other’s opposites, but as this exhibition shows, the reality is quite the contrary.
Spotlight is a new series of short exhibitions in the gallery with an emphasis on open conversations between artists and visitors. For this premiere Spotlight event, we are pleased to present new works by Lars Arrhenius, Bella Rune and Dan Wolgers.

Dan Wolgers: "Konstnärsklubben en skam för kåren"
We are pleased to present Dan Wolgers’ first solo exhibition in the gallery: In the Olive Grove.
Dan Wolgers has been one of the most influential Swedish artists for more than three decades. Last year he compiled a book, a kind of legacy of his oeuvre. Much of the book's content was presented in an exhibition and are now part of the collection of Moderna Museet in Stockholm. The new exhibition In the Olive Grove is a return to the starting point.
Olle Granath, who has followed Dan Wolgers' since the start, has written a text about the exhibition.
Malmö Art Museum / Malmö Konsthall is a unique encounter and reflects the multi-faceted world we live in – one that is constantly changing and undergoing increasing social and environmental shifts on a global scale. Recent decades have seen revolutionary development including a changing global political power balance and the explosive growth of communications technology.

I grupputställningen ”Om Böcker” är det boken som objekt som står i centrum och är utgångspunkt för konstverkens tillkomst. Här möter vi samtida konstnärer och i deras arbeten kan vi se hur boken intar nya oväntade gestaltningar och belyser något fundamentalt i våra dagliga liv.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson har glädjen att inleda samarbetet med Dan Wolgers med en improviserad introduktion i galleriets inre rum.
