III Art Club

Over the last few years, what we have experienced together with you members is a part of what we will offer to everyone who visits us in the future: the chance to get closer to art by also getting access to how it is created and taken care of. III Art Club will not continue in the same form as before. We are very grateful for the memories we have together with you. If you have any questions regarding your membership which expired 2019-12-31, get in touch with us through artclub@magasin3.com.

In May 2020, we will welcome the general public back to Frihamnen and build on our tradition of presenting exhibitions. We will be giving artists the opportunity to experiment and produce new works. The collection will continue to reflect the program. In the future, Magasin III will be accessible via scheduled visits at all times of the year, completely independent from the traditional conception of seasons. 

SOME MEMBERS ABOUT III ART CLUB

“For anyone eager to learn about contemporary currents, III Art Club is a must.”

– Suzanne Osten, playwright and director

“I like the set-up. You make your way to Frihamnen, and are guided through the art as part of a small group. You discover more than you previously saw, have a glass of wine, and return home with a host of new thoughts. It feels important and luxurious.”

– Gunnel Wåhlstrand, artist

“The Sirous Namazi and Matts Leiderstam studio visits were extremely rewarding. They offered a personal and more in-depth account of two very interesting artists! A flawless III Art Club initiative!”

– Nina Blom Bussoli, Curator Learning, Moderna Museet

"For me, III Art Club has the perfect blend of personal studio visits, curator-led tours, artist talks, and enjoyable film screenings with food and wine. All in all, it gives a unique insight into creative and artistic processes that I don’t think you can get anywhere else."

– Peeter Ots, Innovation Designer and Artist

"The most fun part of being a member is the studio visits, which are truly invaluable. In addition to the conversations, you get to see where and perhaps in some sense also how the people we visit work. It provides a whole new understanding and a much more personal image of the artist and their art than what you get at an exhibition. And of course there have also been some really amazing openings and many enjoyable gatherings."

– Lena Torlegård, Communications Advisor at Springtime

"Having seen almost every exhibition at Magasin III since it opened, becoming a member felt like a natural next step for me. My first evening program with III Art Club was the unique dance performance Stage Complex, which appealed to Martin Schinwald’s site-specific installation. When we met with Christine Ödlund, who personally showed us around her multifaceted exhibition Aether & Einsten, I understood how much art affects me. The studio visits with Sirous Namazi and Matts Leiderstam were disarming and provided a meaningful experience."

– Staffan Davidson, former Head of Art Insurance at Trygg-Hansa

“I seldom visit an exhibition at Magasin III merely once – so it's practical for me to be a club member, considering the free entry. III Art Club also organizes special soirées and events from various perspectives, and offers some good mingling. Last fall, for example, I joined a guided evening tour at the Mediterranean Museum where, among other things, I had the opportunity to see and hear about other votive offerings besides the ones on loan to the Magasin III exhibition Like a Prayer. Things like that provide a perspective on art.”

– Emilie Magnusson, artist

“III Art Club is outstanding as it organizes interesting encounters with artists and curators. Two events that I especially enjoyed during the fall of 2015 were the visits to the studios of Sirous Namazi and Mats Leiderstam, which offered the opportunity to talk with the artists and learn how they work and how they view art. Another reason I appreciate III Art Club is the fact that the membership card offers free entry to Palais de Tokyo in Paris, a venue that always presents interesting and epic exhibitions.”

– Bengt G Mölleryd, analyst at the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority

“Visiting Matts Leiderstam's studio was a fantastic experience. We were treated to a personal and naked story of an artist in constant search of new angles from which to look at art history. The preview of Markus Schinwald's exhibition at Magasin III offered a behind-the-scenes look at the art museum. Unfinished carpentry work, paint cans in the corners, paintings waiting to be hung and the general chaos offered a more in-depth understanding of the work process behind the exhibition.”

– Henrik Örnlind, method supporter at the Department of Social Services, Stockholm Municipality
