Exhibits and constructions
Liseberg, an established gardening area, was one site. It was opened to the public for the show, housed a variety of pavilions, including an industrial art building, an export exhibition, a congress hall and a machine hall and amusement rides, including a carousel.
The Arts and Craft Pavilion was designed by Hakon Ahlberg and the Arts Exhibition Pavilion by the architects Sigfrid Ericson (1879-1958) and Arvid Bjerke (1880-1952). The artist David Wallin had a solo exhibition here including his paintings Summer and Springtime in the Forest.
The site of Liseberg has become an amusement park and is now Sweden’s most frequently visited tourist site with 3 million visitors per year.
The exhibition arts building is now the Göteborgs Konsthall, the contemporary art gallery near the exhibition’s Götaplatsen Square.
