Bildmuseet is one of Sweden’s foremost venues for international contemporary art, a part of Umeå University and the public heart of its Arts campus. On seven floors of striking architecture, the fields of Art, Humanities and Science combine to consider key issues of our time. Bildmuseet is a place for stimulating encounters and conversations about art, society and existence.

The exhibitions are produced in collaboration with artists, museums and universities worldwide, and often attract both national and international attention. As a visitor, you are invited to participate in openings, guided tours and creative workshops, listen to artist talks, debates, lectures and live music, watch film screenings and attend other events, all with free admission.

The museum building, designed by Henning Larsen Architects in collaboration with White, has been described as one of the world’s most beautiful university museums.
