A new season (even though it doesn’t feel like we had any winter this year) means new exhibitions are coming to Stockholm’s art museums and galleries! If art isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry… Stockholm has lots of museums and attractions dedicated to history and royalty as well. Back to art. Stockholm really has a nice collection of art museums, looking at a wide variety of art forms: modern, classic, photography, Swedish, international, sculpture and more. Here are the current and upcoming exhibitions for spring 2020:
- Fotografiska (photography)- Two ongoing exhibitions: Hubble- A journey through time and space (until May 17th) and Vogue, the Arab Issue (until June 7th). Then they have three upcoming exhibitions this season: Rubbish, Dipping Sauce, Grass, Peonie, Bum (March 13th to May 31st), Color Lehmitz (March 13th to May 31st) and Generation Wealth (March 20th to May 17th).
