Art on screen

Art on Screen is a selection of eleven screen-based works, made by acclaimed artists coming from or living in Sweden. The art films can be shown separately or together with local artworks. The selection should be made by a renowned local art institution, with curatorial skills to expand and adapt for exhibitions or film programmes. The films can be projected or shown on monitors. 

The selection has been curated by Bettina Pehrsson, Director of Kalmar Konstmuseum, and the films are made available by Filmform. 

The artists in Art on Screen deal with societal change, interpersonal relationships and the interaction between humans and nature. They have varying backgrounds and come from different generations. For some, moving image is their primary means of expression while for others it is one of several media that they use. The exhibition follows three themes, or threads: Civilising Nature, Together and Transitions 

Art on Screen is available until 2024.
