Liljevalchs’ pink gallery has undergone an extensive renovation and has reopened in November 2017. The process continues of erecting a new building next to it.

Liljevalchs konsthall presents at least four large and lavish exhibitions of art and design each year. 

The exhibition programme is directed to both the wider public and to people especially interested in a particular artistic practice or current art and design trends. Liljevalchs’ famous juried Spring Salon marks the opening of each new artistic year. 

Under the authority of the City of Stockholm, the Liljevalchs public art gallery opened in 1916 as the first independent, public museum for contemporary art in Sweden. Designed by Carl Bergsten, it is situated amidst the captivating natural surroundings of the island of Djurgården in Stockholm.

Liljevalchs is under the direction of Mårten Castenfors.

Lars Lerin

Welcome to Lars Lerin’s pictorial world, created from water and pigment. This summer, Liljevalchs will display hundreds of paintings from Lerin’s 2002–2018 period. The rugged landscape of Lofoten or the ruins of Syria, a pillar-like birch forest or lines of files on archive shelves – Lerin reincarnates powerful visual impressions via his inimitable technique.

Petra Gipp: Plaster Models and Book Launch

For architect Petra Gipp, working with models is key. The models allow her sculptural design idiom to take form in the space – or in the void – with a personal voice. At Liljevalchs, Gipp will present 34 plaster models, which are also depicted in a publication that will be launched in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition.
