WANÅS konst

Wanås is a place where art, nature, and history meet. Here we have been producing, presenting and sharing international contemporary art with a focus on site-specific sculptures and installations since 1987. Every year, Nordic and international artists are invited to create art in the Park, and currently there are more than 50 permanent works in our collection produced by artists specifically for Wanås. This site-specific collection includes works by Yoko Ono, Jenny Holzer, Srinivasa Prasad, Ann Hamilton, Ann-Sofi Sidén, Jacob Dahlgren, Henrik Håkansson, Charlotte Gyllenhammar, Per Kirkeby, Marianne Lindberg De Geer, Dan Graham, and Jan Hafstrom. Wanås was initially focused on three-dimensional sculpture from the Nordic countries and the United States, but today our perspective has expanded to include both the world outside the West and the cousins of the visual arts: ​​design, dance, architecture, text, and even science.

In addition to producing and presenting art, publishing books, and organizing seminars, Wanås Konst engages more than 4,000 children in educational activities each year. Our educational activities are constantly growing and evolving, currently with a focus on including people with disabilities and people unfamiliar with art. Read more...
