Liljevalchs 100 years Anniversary 2021
Since 1916, Liljevalchs has been an engine in Swedish art life. Here we remind you of highlights of the art gallery's history.
In this autumn's major exhibition, we make a splash on Liljevalch's more than century-old history, from the inaugural exhibition in 1916 with the time's top trio Carl Larsson, Bruno Liljefors and Anders Zorn to the 2020 pandemic-affected presentation of Hilding Linnqvist.
When Liljevalchs was inaugurated in 1916, the Swedish Artists' Association achieved the goal of creating an independent art gallery for permanent exhibitions of contemporary art. From the early years, Liljevalchs was established as an art gallery for both art and crafts, internationally and nationally, classics and contemporary.
