The IKEA Art Event was a unique collaboration between artists, architects and the IKEA Museum. It took place in three locations in Sweden, Norway and Denmark throughout the fall and winter of 2011-2012. The event was to commemorate the 75th anniversary of IKEA. The participating artists and architects have been commissioned to create exhibits that engage visitors and be interactive by offering activities for the whole family, often in unexpected places. Here’s an example:
IKEA is a family-friendly brand and values the importance of creating a culture of safety at all its locations. To commemorate the 2021 IKEA Art Event, they decided to invite artists and architects to design exhibits that would engage visitors and be interactive by offering activities for the whole family, often in unexpected places. Here’s an example:
“Invisible Playground” (2011) is a sculpture designed by Olafur Eliasson as part of his contribution to the 2011 IKEA Art Event in Sweden. The artwork invites people to play with the sun by using shadows and reflections projected onto giant, mirrored spheres – interacting with one another as they create silhouettes in various parts of the public space surrounding them.”
The goal of this event is to promote art and architecture, while encouraging families to gather and spend time together.

IKEA wanted to reach out to a new audience of artists and generate additional interest in the IKEA Art Event. They decided to invite artists and architects to design exhibits that would engage visitors, be interactive, and create an atmosphere of surprise by offering activities for the whole family.
To accomplish this, IKEA’s art committee has already started working with local and international artist to shop for new ideas and potential creative ideas that can be presented for the 2021 art event and let the visitors have a great time.
IKEA is a famous home furnishings retailer with a strong commitment to creating a culture of safety at all its locations. As part of the preparations to commemorate the 2021 IKEA Art Event, IKEA’s art committee has begun working with artists and architects around the world to shop for new ideas and potential creative concepts that will engage visitors in unexpected ways. The goal is to create exhibits that will encourage visitors not only to shop but also to create their own unique pieces of art.
The exhibition will be held in 2021 at IKEA’s New York location which is located at 400 Hoe Avenue in Paramus, NJ 07652. To prepare for this event, IKEA has started collaborating with artist in many different ways. One example is through IKEA’s invitation of artists who are interested in making an exhibit during the exhibit year as well as winning prizes. The prizes include: $10,000 prize sponsored by PNC Bank; $5,000 prize sponsored by PNC
The IKEA Art Event 2021 will be a multi-million dollar celebration of design, art and architecture.
In order to provide the best experience possible for its customers, IKEA has decided to expand the art event into a week-long festival. This year, they have invited artists and architects to display their works in every nook and cranny of the store, creating activities and experiences that are fun for the whole family.
Our little corner of the world is inviting people from all walks of life to share their knowledge and creativity with us through events such as a photography contest and an essay contest.
IKEA will be providing the basic infrastructure for making this happen, but it’s up to you to contribute by submitting your artwork or creative ideas.
Several years ago, IKEA decided to commission artists and architects to design and install temporary exhibits at the IKEA Art Event. They decided this would be a way to reach new audiences, as well as to address concerns about the commercialization of art.
It’s an interesting idea: bring art into people’s homes and make it fun for families. The obvious concern is that IKEA is trying to build its brand by co-opting artists. But that’s not necessarily true. Many artists don’t like museums much; they’re too quiet, they don’t have enough interaction, they’re too highbrow.** And many don’t like traditional galleries much either; they’re too commercial and snobbish.**
IKEA could be the ideal partner for these artists: a place where art is accessible, interactive, and fun for everyone in the family. And it could help art break out of its current ghettoized state into something that more people can enjoy.*
For example, you could get visitors involved in making their own art works. Not paintings or sculptures but something special just for them; something unique that would belong to them alone.* Or you could have lots of kids’ activities around a theme like “making friends.” That would be unusual for
ART FOR EVERY DAY
The art exhibited at IKEA was done not to please the public, but rather to reflect and create a dialogue between the public, artists, and architects. In fact, it was not really art. It was more like an event. Everyone in our country is always engaged in some sort of activity, whether it be small or large that has impacted their lives. For example, some people cook for their families every day; others dance every day; others sing every day. People always have something that they do on a daily basis. This is the kind of art that IKEA wanted to show off to everyone by having an event.
The idea of the IKEA Art Event was to capture these interactions and experiences that we have every day and put them on display in an interesting way in an exhibit so that customers can connect with it easily and relate to it on a personal level. But this concept doesn’t just apply to the customer-customer interaction, but also extends to other aspects of this business venture. For example, IKEA wanted the space where they would hold this event to be as interactive as possible so they decided to build a structure out of wooden beams and metal sheets which would be completely open for visitors to explore
