New Directions – Decolonising the Museum and Public Art

07 October, KL 17:30 - 19:00

Public Art Agency Sweden and Nordiska museet welcomes you to a conversation on decolonising the museum and public art.

Where: Nordiska museet

This year sees the inauguration of artist Outi Pieski’s public artwork Two Directions / Guektien bïegkese / Guovtte biggii for the new entrance to Nordiska museet.

The artwork connects materials of contemporary art and cultural memory to urgent matters of Swedish colonialism and Saami repatriation.

In this conversation we want to follow the lead of Saami voices. How can public art, public institutions, and the museum take active roles in the process of dismantling coloniality and work toward becoming sites of material change?

Please join us for an online evening programme on decolonising the museum and public art.

This web programme is produced by Public Art Agency Sweden in collaboration with Nordiska museet. It is a part of a programme series on Decoloniality and Public Art, produced by Public Art Agency Sweden.

More information is updated continuously.
