Each month during spring, Kunsten invites you to an international evening at the museum, where you can gather your friends and join a guided tour around the museum.
Each Wednesday will have a different focus – either an artist, an exhibition or a period in art history. It is free to participate, when the entrance fee is paid.
There are a limited number of tickets. Tickets will be distributed one hour before the guided tour.
Please note: A guided tour takes about 50 minutes.
March 1, 5pm – Mirror, mirror on the wall
Some say that a work of art is a reflection of the time in which it is made, or the time in which it is seen. This Wednesday we take a close look at artworks that literally reflects their surroundings, as we look at works of art in Kunsten’s collection, where the mirror is the main material. How important is it that the surroundings and the viewer are involved?
April 5, 5pm – Alvar Aalto: Second Nature
Discover the exhibition Alvar Aalto: Second Nature, which illuminates the world-renowned Finnish architect Alvar Aalto’s (1898-1976) artistic work from the 1920s to the 1970s, with a special focus on Aalto’s inspiration from art and nature in the movement human modernism, for which he was a leading exponent.
May 3, 5pm – Roman Ondak
Experience the Slovakian artist Roman Ondak’s exhibition, History Repeats Itself, on this guided tour. The exhibition invites the viewer to participate in a suggestive staged show, laid out as clues tracing both the passage of time and our capacity to learn from history. The audience visiting is engaged in a sort of archaeological field work, imitating the artist’s own method, where objects are carefully collected and laid out as hidden messages.
