The Artist - National Museum Sweden

The Artist

The Artist is an exhibition that discusses what it means to be an artist, in both a contemporary and a historical context. It examines roles, ideals and myths, illustrating how artists have related to the values, audiences and markets of their time. 

The exhibition (11.02.2016 - 04.09.2016) is co-produced by Konstakademien (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts), Moderna Museet and Nationalmuseum, and on show will be close to 100 works by some of the biggest names in art history, from Rubens and Rembrandt via Renoir and Picasso to Cindy Sherman.
