Photo, Graphic & Textile Art

Abecita Art Museum displays international photo and graphics from Europe and the United States as well as Nordic textile art, in a rich industrial environment from the time when 300 seamstresses sat in long rows and sewed underwear. 3 floors totaling 2400m². The collection is unique in Europe and consists of about 400 works, represented by some 30 artists. It is based on the breakthrough of pop art in the 1960s with outstanding works from every decade until today.

In addition to pop art and graphics, Abecita Art Museum also has a strong focus on photography, with exhibitions that complement the regular collection. Each year, the museum presents at least fifteen different exhibitions by both Swedish and international photographers.
