About us.
In 2009 Konstmuseet i Norr began as a mobile art organisation without permanent premises with the mission to make contemporary art and the conversations surrounding it accessible in all 14 municipalities of Norrbotten. The project’s purpose was also to establish a County Art Museum in Kiruna. In 2017, Konstmuseet i Norr transitioned from a nomadic organisation to a permanent institution.
Currently, with new infrastructure policies, staff members appointed and the development of the museum’s physical site, the organisation is under way. In November 2018 the County Art Museum will open to the public in the building "Kristallen", Kiruna.
