Events and Talks

Artist talks, lectures and film will enhance and complement the exhibitions. Fridays at 19:00 and Sundays at 14:00 are time points when there often is something happening at Bildmuseet: an opening, a lecture or maybe a guided tour by an invited guest with a special perspective on some of the exhibitions. Admission is always free.
