GIBCA-Extended 2017 Göteborg Konst_M

Göteborg Konst

Ut med konsten!, 6–20 Sep Exhibition

Address: The exhibition room at Gothenburg City Library, Götaplatsen 3, Gothenburg
Opening Hours: Monday–Friday 10 am–9 pm, Saturday–Sunday 10 am–6 pm


For 70 years, the City of Gothenburg has bought art to install and show in municipal workplaces. The collection currently includes nearly 9,000 works of art reflecting Gothenburg’s multifaceted art scene from the 1940s to today, giving the public and staff opportunities to experience art in their everyday lives, while also forming a link between the city’s inhabitants and its practising artists. The exhibition features selected works from the collection and related activities. In connection with the opening, a publication will be released, where writers and poets have been asked to reflect and associate freely on a work from the collection. The idea is to highlight the subjective encounter with art, and what it can be like to interpret and associate on art.

Göteborg Konst/Gothenburg Art is a department within the arts administration of the City of Gothenburg, whose mission is to work with public art in buildings and public spaces.

Opening: Wednesday, September 6 at 2 pm.
