Anders Tornberg Gallery
Through a generous donation to Lund University from Inger Hägglund Tornberg , some material of the Anders Tornberg Gallery can be made available for research.
For this purpose, a room has been arranged at Malmö Art Academy. There, the gallery’s whole correspondence and reference library, originals to the very special vernissage cards, a well-known part of the Gallery’s work, multiples and art books published by the gallery and a generous selection of works exhibited at the gallery and that have been included in the art collection of Inger Hägglund Tornberg.
Furthermore, a rich press archive, also including tapes from the TV programs produced through the years showing important exhibitions of the gallery. All included, the donation gives a unique picture of how an art gallery is built. The donation was made by Inger Hägglund Tornberg to Lund University’s principal Boel Flodgren on December 17, 2002.
