Borås Art Museum is known for its national and international exhibitions, as well as its substantial collection of Swedish contemporary art, of which moving images is especially prominent.
The museum consists of three floors and houses several exhibition areas. Experience contemporary art, immerse yourself in Lars Tunbjörk's exceptional work of photography and develop your own creativity in our artist’s studio.
Borås Art Museum also manages the city’s public art and organizes Borås Internation Sculpture Biennale. In 2021 Borås is marking the 400th anniversary of its founding. In conjunction with the festivities, the Borås International Sculpture Biennale is changing its name to the Borås Art Biennial and launching new partnerships with the Textile Museum of Sweden and Borås TME to engage the entire city in a festival of art.
Mission in moving images
Because of its long involvement with film- and video art, Borås Art Museum has been assigned the mission by Västra Götaland Regional Council to collect, preserve and display moving images. It is a responsibility we manage by displaying video art in the museum, and by taking an active part in the development of moving images as an art form.
