The Art Nouveau Centre
Stiftelsen Kulturkvartalet is a non-profit foundation that operates Jugendstilsenteret and KUBE.
Jugendstilsenteret is located in the old Swan Pharmacy from 1907 and is both a museum and a national centre of Art Nouveau. The catastrophic fire of 1904 left the town of Ålesund in ashes. The rebuilding created one of Europe’s most characteristic architectural environments in the Art Nouveau style. Jugendstilsenteret offers insight into this style by means of authentic interiors and objects as well as temporary exhibitions. We also work with documentation, education and consulting.
KUBE is the art museum in the county of Møre og Romsdal and is located in the former branch office building of Norges Bank (1906) in central Ålesund. Through a diverse programme of exhibitions and public activities, the museum aims to promote interest in and knowledge of visual arts, applied art, design and architecture. KUBE develops and manages an art collection focused on artworks and artists with connections to the region.
