Moderna Museet, Stockholm

NOW CLOSED

The following information is accurate at time of publication. In light of the evolving Covid-19 situation it is advised visitors check museums’ websites for further updates.

This is the first Swedish survey of work by John Baldessari, who died earlier this year. It explores how the American artist abandoned painting in the 1960s, instead making use of photographs and text cribbed from popular and academic sources to create provocative and irreverent works. Find out more from the Moderna Museet’s website.
