"Frail Mighty" at Kunsthall Stavanger, opening Nov 1., 2018

In the autumn of 2018, Kunsthall Stavanger will launch a new series of exhibitions in which artist-run spaces are invited to present a project. Prosjektrom Normanns, which I am co-director of together with Elin Melberg, is curating the inaugural exhibition of the series. The title is “Frail Mighty” and will include works by AK Dolven (NO), Vibeke Tandberg (NO), Mattias Härenstam (NO), Ane Graff (NO), Nathlie Provosty (USA).

In addition, Prosjektrom Normanns is invited to a separate exhibition - as an artists-behind-the artist-run-concept.

Velvet Rope at Galleri Golsa / OSLO EDITION Aug. 17 & 18. 2018


I will participate with six works (acrylic on paper) in the group exhibition Velvet Rope at Galleri Golsa. This is s an international traveling series of group shows with international artists. All works shown are original works on paper in the format of A3 and sold for the low price of $100 USD, or the local equivalent (In Norway: NOK 1000). Golsa also hosts Got It For Cheap (GIFC) simultaneously with works in A4 for $30 or the local equivalent. The goal of GIFC/Velvet Rope is to make buying original art accessible to all people.
