Magasin 3 at Nybroplan
Curators: Richard Julin and Tessa Praun

We will be opening our fall season at Nybroplan, in central Stockholm, on September 18-21, with a monumental outdoor installation by Katharina Grosse (b. 1961, Germany). Grosse paints directly on architecture, objects, and canvas. The new work will later be moved to Frihamnen as part of our fall exhibition, which brings together works by Katharina Grosse, Sol LeWitt and Walter De Maria. We will open our doors at Frihamnen on September 19!

September 19 – December 14, 2014

Curators: Richard Julin and Tessa Praun

This fall, Magasin 3 will be bringing together works by Katharina Grosse, Sol LeWitt and Walter De Maria, all of whom have had major exhibitions at the museum since its inception in 1987. Grosse’s expressive and abstract painting will meet works by the masters of minimalism and conceptual art. The exhibition traces a particular trajectory through art history, whilst it actively relates to the history of Magasin 3. Sol LeWitt (1928-2007, USA) exhibited his first wall drawing in 1968, introducing an approach that would change the way we understand art today. Around the same time, Walter De Maria (1935-2013, USA) showed the first version of his work consisting of stainless steel rods, which led to a series of powerful, often monumental installations. Ten years ago, Katharina Grosse (b. 1961, Germany), painted directly onto the walls, ceilings and floors of Magasin 3, transforming the exhibition space into a painting that visitors could enter and move around in. For the fall exhibition, she is working on an installation that references her site-specific painting from 2004. Grosse will also be creating a new and monumental outdoor installation specifically for Magasin 3.

I’m Still Here

September 19 – December 14

Curators: Richard Julin and Tessa Praun

Erik Aalto, John Bock, Christian Boltanski, Tom Friedman, Oscar Guermouche, David Hammons, Sofia Hultén, Aernout Mik, MoonspoonSaloon, Lars Nilsson, Pipilotti Rist, Lara Schnitger, Santiago Sierra, Laurie Simmons & Allan McCollum, Geraldine Swayne, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Andrea Zittel

The spring’s major exhibition, I’m Still Here, will feature artworks taken exclusively from the Magasin 3 collection. The selected works illuminate different aspects of what it means to be human. Mirroring the complexity of the human experience, the exhibition is a fragmentary compilation of traits, behavioral patterns and driving forces that radiate through the artworks encountered. Presenting sculpture, painting, photography and film works by twenty Swedish and international artists, the exhibition includes artworks being shown for the first time at Magasin 3. The exhibition will also see the return of a number of artworks specifically produced for Magasin 3, such as Pipilotti Rist’s monumental Gravity, be my friend, and major works by Christian Boltanski, John Bock and Sofia Hultén.

The Drawing Room

September 19 – December 14

Curator: David Neuman

Maya Attoun, Ann Böttcher, Mark Dion, Marcel van Eeden, Carl August Ehrensvärd, Kendell Geers, Jan Groth, Robert Guillot, Carl Hammoud, Carl Fredrik Hill, Bror Hjorth, Ernst Josephson, R.B.

Magasin 3 will present some seventy drawings from its unique collection. Works on paper are often uncensored and seldom reworked—capturing the spontaneous and direct expression of the artist. The exhibition will feature a wide range of work dating from the mid-1800s to drawings completed just a few weeks ago. Visitors will have the opportunity to sit down in the exhibition space and contemplate the visual reality, just like in old-fashioned “drawing rooms.”
