New Exhibition: The Swedish Music Hall of Fame
The Swedish Music Hall of Fame moves in to the museum. This new exhibition pays tribute to some of Sweden’s most renowned music makers, from ABBA to Roxette.
“We are very happy to present our exhibition about Swedish popular music in this amazing situation and context. We are now able to give the individuals in the Hall of Fame the attention they deserve and we are convinced that this collaboration with Scenkonstmuseet will strengthen popular music’s status as cultural heritage, ” comments Charlotte Wiking, CEO of The Swedish Music Hall of Fame.
An important part of cultural heritage
Scenkonstmuseet and the Swedish Music Hall of Fame also plan to collaborate on programming and the collection of artefacts.
“Scenkonstmuseet has one of the world’s premier collections relating to music, but in terms of popular music, there are many gaps to fill. This collaboration enables us to work long-term in strengthening our collections. The purpose of both the exhibition and collection development is to give popular music its legitimate place as cultural heritage,” says Daniel Wetterskog, Director of Scenkonstmuseet.
The Swedish Music Hall of Fame is run by the non-profit collecting foundation Svenska Musikskattens Hus.
