was opened in 1975 and is one of Europe’s largest exhibition halls for
contemporary art. Architect Klas Anshelm has created an exhibition hall
with great flexibility, generous space and fantastic light. The
construction materials are light and simple: concrete, glass, wood and
aluminium. Most of the gallery has a ceiling constructed like a
latticework of 550 domes with both natural and artificial light sources.
The height of the ceiling varies. The light well - with the higher
ceiling - has a big sloping skylight towards the north. Klas Anshelm got
inspiration for the construction when visiting the sculptor Constantin
Brancusi in his Paris studio. The result is a gallery that is both
functional and aesthetic. An exhibition space that presents the artist
with endless possibilities.
Malmö Konsthall arranges exhibitions
with an international focus which encompasses both the classics of
modern art and current experiments.
