Exhibition THE CABINET, Lisa Stålspets – TA EMOT

In SKÅPET at Busstorget, the exhibition Ta Emot? About the exhibition: Receive it says in the form of a fluttering ribbon, like an important message from above. Lisa Stålspets (b. 1978 in Stockholm) works with exhibitions as a form of assemblage, with works in different techniques such as painting, drawing, sculpture and text. Often she examines the complex dynamic between seeing and being seen.

As in a mirror 

The exhibition as in a mirror shows portraits spanning five centuries. Here, women, men and children who lived in or worked for Sweden from Vasatid to today are introduced. The artworks show different ideals of appearance and fashion and are expressions of how ideas about status, social identity and profession have changed over the centuries. The exhibition is on display from 4 October 2023 

Bengt Ellis Oas – Places of private and secluded beauty

The exhibition is Bengt Ellis’s 100th anniversary and here we get to take part in his artistry which was in constant development. We get to see Bengt Ellis’ magical and different world, places of untouched beauty and seclusion and we get to share his search for the untouched, among other things, when he explored South America and the indigenous people’s relationship with nature.
The exhibition is on display from September 27, 2023 – September 1, 2024
