Discover the power of sculpture at the Thiel gallery


15 June – 29 September 2019

In the exhibition Gustav Vigeland – The power and feeling of sculpture, visitors can experience a wide spectrum of Gustav Vigeland’s sculptures. As transport partner, MTAB has been responsible for transport, packaging manufacture, installation and conservator services.

The Norwegian sculptor and artist Gustav Vigeland would have turned 150 years old this year, and this is being commemorated by The Thiel Gallery with an exhibition produced in partnership with Vigeland Museum in Oslo. Gustav Vigeland – The power and feeling of sculpture is showing Vigeland’s art in Stockholm with works from the period 1890–1940.

Discover a sculptor who, throughout his whole life, dedicated himself to the human – body, soul and our relationships

Much more than art transport

MTAB Fine Art Logistics is participating as proud transport partner of the exhibition. Ahead of the transport, MTAB was responsible for the planning and manufacture of custom-built transportation boxes. It was also MTAB that was responsible for collection of the works in Oslo and their transport to the Thiel Gallery in Stockholm.

All works were installed on site by MTAB’s personnel. During installation, the conservator from the Vigeland Museum, Ingebjørg Mogstad, collaborated with MTAB’s own conservator Elisabeth Geijer on permit reports and mounting.

says Elisabeth Geijer.
