Press release 210722: Konstmuseet i Norr reopens to the public on 17 August


It is with great pleasure that we can now welcome visitors to the art museum again. Konstmuseet i Norr has been closed for 280 days, since November, 2020.

During the period that the museum has been closed due to the coronavirus, the problem with the water leak at the premises has been solved. We are gradually opening up the museum with new exhibitions, and at the turn of September/October the entire museum will be open again. We look forward to an active autumn at Konstmuseet i Norr!

County Art Museum Director, Selma Green, is happy to present the news:

“It feels wonderful to be able to open the art museum to the public again, after the tough time that has been. We have planned an absolutely fantastic program for the autumn and hope that our visitors will receive it with the same enthusiasm as they have participated in our digital offer. We have missed having visitors and are pleased that meetings between viewers and works of art will soon be possible again”, says Selma Green.

Welcome to the exhibition Samla & visa (Collect & Display)

The exhibition Samla & visa has been open digitally since March but now it will also be possible for visitors to experience the exhibition in Kristallen in Kiruna. The exhibition examines the meanings and functions of collecting by starting from the art museum’s mission as a permanent and conservational institution in changing times. Samla & visa provides an insight into the challenges that a museum of contemporary art faces in its work and discusses how, what and why museums collect and show. The exhibition has been open digitally since March but now for the first time it will also be possible for visitors to experience the exhibition in Kristallen in Kiruna.

Find out more about this autumn’s exciting exhibition offerings and programs on our website and follow us on social media for more news and activities.
