The new arena for art and design, Nationalmuseum Jamtli (a branch of the Swedish National Museum) opened officially in June 2018.

The inaugural exhibition offers contemporary art from six centuries, with works by artists including Rembrandt, Rubens, Alexander Roslin, Ulrica Fredrika Pasch, Jenny Nyström and Carl Larsson.

Each age has its own art, which at that particular time is the latest, most spectacular and most modern. This exhibition takes us on a journey into contemporary art from the 16th century until the present day. Along an imagined time line, we follow the major elements of European art history. Thematic digressions broaden and deepen the perspective. We are given an insight into what influenced art at various time, as well as who and why. There will be a total of around 180 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and handicraft and design artefacts. They recount our history over six centuries.

The pieces of art in the exhibition are all key works in the National Museum’s collections. This is the first time that such a significant part of Sweden’s national art and design collection will be on display outside Stockholm.
Six centuries of contemporary art will be displayed at National Museum Jamtli until the middle of 2019, after which it will be replaced by a new exhibition from the National Museum’s collections.

The art museum building has been built next to the Jamtli museum and was designed by Henning Larsen Architects in Denmark.
