Opening of Transitions
On Thursday, 22 November at 5pm Konstmuseet i Norr will open its inaugural exhibition Transitions, spanning four floors in the golden heart of Kristallen.
Artists with a connection to the Arctic region have been invited to show newly produced or revised pieces that have been purpose-made for the museum’s new premises. Transitions is an exhibition that examines the changing definition of landscape as both motif and concept, where the subject is explored through a wide range of artist perspectives and material choices.
