After a long, hot summer, the (sudden) drop in temperatures is a sure sign that autumn is right around the corner. The change in seasons means that we are looking for more indoor activities and, thankfully, there are some great art exhibits coming up at the main art museums and galleries in Stockholm to keep you busy. You can also check my list of summer exhibitions as many of the museums have exhibitions that last through September.

  • Fotografiska (photography)- there are a couple of exhibitions going on through September: Evelyn Bencicova "Merror" (until Sept 23rd) and Simen Johan "Until the Kingdom Comes" (until Sept 23rd). Two upcoming exhibitions are Noémie Goudal "Stations" (Sept 7th to Nov 18th) and Lars Tunbjörk "A Look From the Side" (Sept 14th to Dec 2nd). Considering the exhibit space, I am guessing that there will be two other exhibitions starting in October. I will add when they are announced.

  • Moderna (modern art)- their big fall exhibition, which I am really looking forward to, is Warhol 1968 (Sept 15th to Feb 17th) which celebrates the fact that Andy Warhol had his first solo exhibition in Europe at Moderna, 50 years ago! Another upcoming exhibition is Moderna Exhibition 2018 (Oct 20th to Jan 6th). 
  • ArkDes (architecture & design)- their ongoing exhibition is Public Luxury (until Jan 13th) and their upcoming exhibition is called Space Popular, Value in the Virtual (Sept 19th to Nov 18th). They also have a permanent exhibit on Architecture in Sweden
  • Millesgården (sculpture & art)- Most people come to visit the beautiful sculpture garden, but they also have a gallery with temporary exhibitions. Their upcoming exhibition is William Morris "More than Floral Wallpaper" (Sept 15th to Feb 3rd). 
  • National (classic art)- the big news is that they are finally reopening on October 13th after several years of being closed for renovations! The big opening exhibition will be John Singer Sargent (until Jan 13th). Looking forward to their reopening...
