MAN - Museum Anna Nordlander aims to provoke, engage and make art visible in society. The activity is based on the audience's participation, where co-creation is an important part. MAN wants to challenge the image of what an art museum can be, and asks questions about our society, now and in the future.
MAN is named after the artist Anna Nordlander (1843–1879) who was born in Skellefteå and was one of the first women to study at the Royal Academy of Arts in Stockholm.
MAN is an independent department at Skellefteå Museum AB and has the task of spreading knowledge about contemporary art and gender issues to a broad public.
MAN works norm-creatively with gender and identity issues, which we raise through contemporary art. MAN works with exhibitions, pedagogy and development of the conditions of contemporary art in the Västerbotten region.
