about

The legendary curator Pontus Hultén (1924–2006) worked at Moderna Museet in Stockholm between 1958 and 1973. In 1960 he was appointed director. It was in this role that he built the collection and the museum’s international reputation, with exhibitions such as Movement in Art (1961), American Pop Art (1964), Niki de Saint-Phalle’s She–A Cathedral (1966) and Warhol’s first European solo exhibition (1968). In 2005 Hultén donated his art collection, library and archives to Moderna Museet. Pontus Hultén and Moderna Museet: The Formative Years explores Hultén’s practice as a curator and director. In addition to new essays, the book contains archival photographs and documents as well as a previously unpublished 1962 text by Hultén outlining his ideas on how an art museum should run.
