Requests should be made in writing at least 9 months prior to an exhibition is scheduled to start. Currently, our loans are somewhat reduced due to the extraordinary work involved in moving to the new National Museum. We try to accommodate requestes to the extent possible, but hope for your understanding of the situation.

In order to facilitate a decision the request should include:

  • A list of the requested works of art (artist, title, technique, dimensions, inventory number - if possible)
  • Duration and title of the exhibition
  • Description of the exhibition concept
  • Purpose of the loan
  • List of works may also be sent digitalized.
