With some 40 000 artworks, Malmö Art Museum holds one of the largest art collections in Sweden. It’s a unique collection owned by Malmö City and its citizens. The exhibition The Collection presents a cross section of the history of art, up to the 21st century. It allows us to perceive the ways in which painting, graphic print, sculpture, arts and crafts, furniture and textile evolve from one era to the next.
Art has always been deeply affected by the time and place in which it was created, and contemporary art is no exception. This is also true for the collection of art. Therefore, the collections of Malmö Art Museum are as much part of history as they are a part of the living present.
