Saturday 1st April Laura Darbutaitė : New Sweden 12:00 - 17:00 Twice a week, the public is welcome to visit the museum's Viking Room, where the "New Sweden" tapestry from the museum's permanent collection will be exhibited. Spectators are invited to a private viewing, where both sides of the textile will be displayed for the first time since it was made in 1928.

Hanna Romin : Extended Arm Drawings (Octopus) 11 : 00 - 14 : 00 Fascinated and interested in the eight armed octopus Romin returns seven times and perform live drawing in front of the octopus, during daytime and evening. The artist wants to investigate how a living creature can influence her way of drawing. Through borrowed exterior attribute from the octopus she wants to come closer and understand the animal as an individual through spending time with it.
Cilla Berg : Procession 14 : 00 - 15 : 00 Berg takes the museum's collected artefacts as her point of departure: objects kept behind protective glass and out of reach, escaping tactile desire. The artist has reinterpreted a number of artefacts and lets them take the form of sculpture or costume.

On five occasions these reinterpretations are taken out of their placement and visitors are encouraged to physically engage with the sculptures by taking part in a procession. The objects will be carried around the museum in a way reminiscent of the carrying of holy relics, with elements of carnival.

All ages welcome.
