Malmö: The Moderna Exhibition

September 20, 2014 - January 25, 2015

The Moderna Exhibition
Society Acts
Malmö 20 September 2014 – 25 January 2015

Screening room in The New Gallery
 

Twice before, in 2006 and 2010, Moderna Museet’s inventory of Swedish contemporary art, the Moderna Exhibition, has been shown at the Museum in Stockholm.
In autumn 2014, the third edition of the Moderna Exhibition will be presented at Moderna Museet Malmö. Unlike the two previous exhibitions, the selection has been widened geographically beyond Sweden, to include artists from a large part of the Baltic region.  The exhibition features 38 contemporary artists and artist groups from, or based in, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. A few historical elements will also be included. The widened geographical scope coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Baltic Exhibition in Malmö in 1914.

The title refers both to “acts” as in actions and to the verb to act. Several of the featured artists and works discuss or engage in performative practices where the distance between viewing and interacting is essential, and where issues of private and collective identities, political expressions and personal reflections are materialised. Language and migration, the boundary between private and public, and between fact and fiction, are other subjects that occur frequently in the exhibition.

A rich programme of performances, lectures and film screenings is planned in conjunction with the exhibition. All the featured artists will also be presented in an extensive catalogue.
