Britas salon

Britas salon

Carl and Elise Eldh’s daughter Brita Eldh (1907-2000) turned her father’s studio into a museum after his death in the 1950s, and ran the museum alone for a long time while she lived in an annex next to the museum. Brita was active at the site for over 45 years and her importance cannot be underestimated. The museum display of today – with its selection, its presentation of the collection, belongings and artworks, is largely her work.

During her time at the museum, Brita hosted cultural, poetry and music soirees, to which she invited the audience into art experiences and live performances among the artworks. We are now reviving this part of the museum’s history in a series of salons, as a tribute to Brita Eldh, her life and work.

Amongst the sculptures and other belongings left behind, musicians, writers and artists now meet the public in a series of salons. The focus is on a live setting and a vibrant atmosphere.
