EuroPride is coming to Gothenburg!
Between 14-19 August two big festivals are taking place in Gothenburg: Kulturkalaset and the international event EuroPride. During this week we welcome you to guided tours where we explore the queer in art. It´s free admission and no pre-registration is needed.
Guided tour: See clear – see queer!
Queer people have always been around, but have been made invisible throughout history. Therefore, people living outside the norm can be hard to spot in art, which might make us question if queer people ever existed at all. Art is often a bearer of the artists own feelings and values. Erotic motives, secret desires and habits considered as taboo, are now brought into light. Welcome to a tour where we see clear – and queer!

Open lecture on Performance and Performativity
Welcome to this open lecture with PhD Camilla Jalving, curator at Arken, Copenhagen, held in English. Wednesday 19 September, 6 pm in the museum Auditorium
Performance and Performativity: Expanding the Field
During the 1960s performance art contributed to breaking and questioning several norms and it came to define the discourse on art for the following decades. With some of the leading artists of this early period as a starting point, the talk will discuss some of the characteristic elements of its performance art and the changes that followed, while also looking closer at the practices of some contemporary artists that continue to explore this mode of expression. Camilla Jalving is PhD whose main area of interest is performativity and contemporary art. She works as a curator at Arken, Copenhagen.
There is a limited number of seats and tickets can be retrieved one week before each lecture at the museum reception desk. The lecture is included in the admission.

The real attraction for me was the gallery's collection of Nordic painters. Goteborgs konstmuseum has possibly the best collection of Nordic painters in the whole of Sweden.

At the Göteborg Art Museum you could really feel the art from different centuries communicate with eachother. Great work of mixing old and new pieces from the collection and giving the exhibition such an interesting twist!

Highly recommended (three stars). The museum is exceptional and worth a trip.

Visiting the Gothenburg Museum of Art was one of the highlights of my stay in the city.
Visitor From TripAdvidsor
I took a walk through Gothenburg and discovered the museum of art. At the end my visit took 2 hours longer than I planned to spend in the city, because I really enjoyed exploring all the artworks and the temporary exhibition in this nice building. As a student the entry was free! :-)
Visitor From TripAdvidsor
The museum houses art (mainly paintings) from the last 500 years or so. We were pleased to see such a wide-range of artists' work displayed - both those from Scandinavia but also those more well-known to us such as Picasso, Munch, Van Gogh, Kandinsky and Monet.
Book a Private Guided Tour
Did you know that you can book private guided tours at the museum, for both personal occasions and events for companies and societies? A private guided tour can be a wonderful surprise for someone you wish to celebrate, or an inspirational experience for you and your coworkers. Perhaps you will become aware of new contexts and new ways to see art, or notice details that you did not know existed. The guided tours are led by our art educators, who adapt the content to your specific interests. Read more about the different themes below.
