The Spring Salon is Stockholm’s surest, and perhaps earliest, sign of spring.
This year’s jury comprises Pontus Hammarén, Director of Alingsås konsthall, Karolina Peterson, Director of Mjellby konstmuseum, and Claudia Schaper, Curator at Kristianstad konsthall. Liljevalchs Konsthall is represented by Mårten Castenfors and Mårten Åhsberg, who chairs the jury. The concept of a jury-selected Spring Salon is based on a fine old French tradition. Since the 1920s, Liljevalchs’ version of this arrangement has driven some people up the wall, while others have appreciated the salon’s democratic ambitions. A warm welcome to the exhibition. All the works are for sale!
In addition The Young Spring Salon,located one floor down in the art gallery, displays works by Stockholm upper secondary school students – in other words, the artists, designers, film makers and art directors of the future.
