Expedition Art

October 30, 2021–February 27, 2022

Eight prominent contemporary artists – Lars Lerin, Dascha Esselius, Bigert & Bergström, Svenerik Jakobsson, Hanna Ljungh, Josef Bull, Sigrid Sandström and Johan Petterson – are featured in this experimental and innovative exhibition linked to the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat’s artists programme and residencies on the Arctic and Antarctic. In this exhibition, fascinating issues that arise in the borderland between art and science are explored in paintings, prints, photographs, sculptural objects, light installations and film. Expedition Art is shown both indoors and outdoors. It is co-organised with the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat and is accompanied by an interesting programme.

About the museum

Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde is one of Sweden’s most popular art museums, beautifully situated on Djurgården in Stockholm. The museum consists of a main building, the Mansion, built in 1903–1905 as a residence for Prince Eugen (1865–1947), and a gallery building that was added in 1913. Architect Ferdinand Boberg designed both buildings in close cooperation with Prince Eugen. The prince, son of King Oscar II and Queen Sophia, was one of the leading landscape painters of his time. He was also an important art collector and a central figure in the Swedish cultural world.
