Art Exhibitions This Fall & Winter- 2012/13

National Museum
I recently posted about my visit to the photography museum to see the new Christer Strömholm exhibition. This is only one of the many art exhibitions showing this fall in museums and galleries around Stockholm. Here is a list of some of the highlights of the coming autumn season to help you plan your visit:

  • Fotografiska (photography)- besides the Christer Strömholm exhibition (until Nov 25th), they will also be showing "In the Flux" by Marie Friberg... an investigation of male gender identity (Sep 14th to Nov 25th). The big exhibition for the winter season is David LaChapelle, which will take up the whole museum until March 3rd. Click here to read about my visit!
