Bildmuseet is a public institution for contemporary art and visual culture. We exhibit and engage with international contemporary art, design and architecture.
Mario Merz was associated with Arte Povera, a group of Italian artists in the 1960s who turned away from artistic convention in favour of openness and materials that could undermine entrenched assumptions and actively engage with processes of the physical and social world. Neon, numbers, newsprint, brushwood and bags of clay are some of the materials Merz employed. Mario Merz: What Is to Be Done? will be the first presentation of the artist’s work in Sweden in thirty years.
