Thrice Upon a Time
11 Sep - 12 Dec 2010
11 Sep – 12 Dec 2010
The fall of 2010 marks the opening of the unprecedented exhibition “Thrice upon a time”. This is the largest exhibition to date with artworks taken exclusively from the Magasin 3 collection. In three parallel presentations over 150 works by artists ranging from Absalon to Zetterquist fill the exhibition spaces with photography, drawing, painting, film and sculpture. Key works by established artists, are paired with pieces by artists who have not previously exhibited in Sweden. Together these works give an unsurpassable insight into the Magasin 3 collection.
In each of the chapters the curators Richard Julin, Tessa Praun and Elisabeth Millqvist offer different points of access to the collection. One of them is collecting and the history of the objects, while another focuses on the artistic process offering fantasies and glimpses from the artist’s studio. The third chapter updates the classical categories of portraiture and landscape.
Collecting has been part of Magasin 3 since its inception in 1987. Today the collection includes close to 600 artworks. With works by artists born between 1849 and 1978 the exhibition not only stages the meeting of for example Karin Mamma Andersson and Ernst Josephson but above all reflects contemporary art history. The majority of the works were created in the past two decades and several of them have never previously been shown in Sweden.
