Örebro konsthall is a gallery for Swedish and international contemporary art.
Örebro konsthall want to provide exciting arts experiences for the citizens of Örebro and city visitors by exhibiting Swedish and international contemporary art of high quality. We also want to spread knowledge about art and make it accessible to the public. Our art educator shows the exhibitions for children, young people and adults and invites to a conversation about art.
Örebro konsthall is part of the municipality of Örebro. The gallery is in charge of the municipal art collection which currently consists of approximately 8300 works of art. These are mostly deposited in various places like schools and homes for the elderly. About 300 pieces are placed outdoors like in parks and squares.
In 2008 Örebro Konsthall started up OpenART, the Art Biennial where art transforms Örebro city into a giant outdoor exhibition of contemporary art. Since 2013 OpenART has it´s own organization.
Konsthallens Vänner (the Art Gallery's friends ) is an active art club. The aim is to support the gallery and to increase the interest and commitment to visual arts in general.
Manager at Örebro konsthall is Anna-Karin Wulgué.
The gallery started as Gallery Fenix in 1979 in Fenixhuset (the Phoenix building), opposite Stora hotellet. In 1986 the address became Olaigatan 7 and the name was changed to Konsthallen i Örebro (the Art Gallery in Örebro). During 1994-2003, we were housed in Länsmuseet (the County Museum) and formed together the Art Museum. Since 2003 we find ourselves in Olaigatan 17B, in a former banking hall. Our bright and airy art gallery is one of the most beautiful galleries in Sweden, overlooking the black river Svartån, the old castle Örebro Slott and a bustling street life outside.
The gallery is in charge of the municipal art collection which currently consists of approximately 8100 works of art. About 300 works of them are placed outdoors such as in parks and squares.
Purchases are made by the gallery manager together with the staff. All purchased works are photographed and registered. Most of the artworks are deposited indoors in the various municipal departmets. The gallery has a small depot where municipal staff can select art to their workplaces.
Sculptures of durable materials, such as bronze and stone are found in many places in the municipality, in squares and school playgrounds, in neighborhoods and parks. Art can be purchased to suit a specific spot, mainly outdoors. Artists can be asked to make a proposal for specific spots, based on the special conditions and needs of the location.
Örebro municipality allocated 1 percent of the construction budget to art when building new or rebuilding. Örebro konsthall is responsible for the implementation of the project and invites artists to present a proposal. Depending on the size of the allocated funds an open competition can be arranged. The proposals shall be accepted by the recipient and the architect before the work is carried out.
