Dreams of Hollywood

Drömmar om Hollywood

14 April 2018–31 December 2019, Slottsholmen
For many people in the 1930s it was an unachievable dream to dress up in a glittering evening dress, drink champagne and dance in ballrooms. But everyone could dream, and Hollywood films supplied abundant nourishment to those dreams.

The exhibition presents a selection of evening fashions from the 1930s plus some everyday and leisure wear. They show us a new ideal body that was totally unlike the tomboy figure of the 1920s. Now the focus lay on feminine forms, emphasised by figure-hugging materials cut in sophisticated ways.

Between Depression and World War

14 April 2018–31 December 2019, Slottsholmen
The carefree 1920s ended with a crash. By the beginning of the 1930s the world had been crippled by social and political troubles, mass unemployment and the Great Depression. Sweden was also badly affected but recovered swiftly. “Between Depression and World War” sheds light on the social, economic and political developments in Sweden and Malmö during the decade leading up to World War II and shows clear connections between then and now.

Design for fragrance – bottles for liquid glamour

25 November 2017–2 September 2018
Art historian Christina Lindvall-Nordin shares her unique collection of perfume bottles. The exhibition is presented in Malmöhus Castle and is a nostalgic journey among world-famous perfumes from the 1700s to today.
