Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, and as a preventive measure against the spread of the virus, Kunsthall Stavanger is closed until June 20, when we open the annual touring exhibition Vestlandsutstillingen.
We have postponed all exhibitions and events scheduled in March, April and May, including our exhibition with Marte Eknæs and our exhibition with Jonathan Baldock. All our public programming is also postponed until the end of May, including all of our educational initiatives.
NEW INITIATIVE: #FROMKSTOYOU
Even though our doors are closed, we are bringing you art through our digital channels, and also through banner art on our building, under the umbrella title #fromKStoyou.

We are asking artists to create a post for our Instagram account that can hopefully create calmness, ground and inspire, as well as spread solidarity at this moment in time.

Artists include Laurel Schwulst, Synnøve Sizou G. Wetten, Nicole Killian, Clara Balaguer and Czar Kristoff, Hanne Lippard, Lina Viste Grønli, Rhys Coren, Tiril Hasselknippe, with more to come.
