Welcome to Strandverket Art Museum

Strandverket Art Museum showcases contemporary art of highest international class, mainly photography and sculpture but also painting and digital art.

Strandverket Art Museum is housed in the old fortification known as Södra Strandverket, by the south entrance to the Marstrand harbour. The building is an attraction in itself, with a history dating back to the mid-1800s. In conjunction with the exhibitions, the building offers visitors an exciting experience.

Strandverket aims to create meetings within arts; an attractive tension between old and new, different genres and, most importantly, visitors to Strandverket.

Strandverket has  a permanent collection of sculptures. In the court yard inside the walls, you can find works by Sean Henry, Bernar Venet, Pål Svensson, Maria Miesenberger and Eva Hild.

Outside the building, there are sculptures by  Enrique Martínez Celaya, as well as Tony Craggs’ six-metre tall Point of view down by the water.

Strandverket Art Museum is open from early spring to late autumn and four to six weeks during December and January. Strandverket also houses a shop and a licensed bistro.

 Idag har våra konstkollodeltagare haft sin vernissage och alla deras nära och kära har varit här för att fira. I fyra dagar har de arbetat med ett gemensamt verk. Skulptur och fotografi har varit temat och vi har haft otroligt roligt med lek, fika och workshop varje dag. Vi saknar redan allihopa! På måndag drar vi igång med konstkollot för barn mellan 9-12 år och det finns fortfarande ett fåtal platser kvar. Snabba och anmäl era barn - på strandverket.se finns mer information. #konstkollo #strandverketkonsthall #strandverket #marstrand #konst #kollo
