To ensure the safety of museum visitors and staff, there will be restrictions on the number of visitors, instructions on distancing and hygiene and other special arrangements. This summer the museum presents the Generation 2020 exhibition, which has been extended through 23 August.
Generation 2020 is a fascinating peek into the minds and art of an emerging generation of artists. The exhibition presents works by over 80 artists aged 15–23. The diversity of the artists is apparent in the exhibition that shows artworks selected through an open call from over 1 600 proposals.
