Mobilizing Citizenship - An Interview with Kristina Ketola Bore

This semester Kunsthall Stavanger is continuing the project Mobilizing Citizenship, organized by guest curator Kristina Ketola Bore. The art mediation project is aimed at young people aged 12-16 with no prior exposure to art mediation or formal art education. Over the course of the program, the youth will meet and collaborate with a variety of artists and be introduced to artistic strategies and methods in a workshop format. One of the main goals is that the participants will build a sense of ownership over their surroundings and see themselves as autonomous agents with the possibility to partake in public discourse. Below, Kristina Ketola Bore gives us a little more information about her background as well as the impetus behind the project and practical implementation of the workshops.

Opening Soon! Frail Mighty

Kunsthall Stavanger is currently closed for the installation of a new exhibition, Frail Mighty, opening on November 1, 2018, at 6pm.

This autumn, Kunsthall Stavanger is launching a new series of exhibitions in which artist-run spaces are invited to present a project within our galleries. Concurrently, we invite the artists who run the venues to present their own artwork as well, highlighting the relationship between curatorial and creative practices. Frail Mighty is the inaugural exhibition in the series, and is curated by Stavanger-based gallery Prosjektrom Normanns.

Prosjektrom Normanns is an artist-run space in Stavanger dedicated to the production and exhibition of experimental, site-specific projects, established in 2011 and directed by the visual artists Elin Melberg and Margrethe Aanestad.

In content both sections of Frail Mighty pertain to a deeply personal but nevertheless universal issue; existential vulnerability. The works are all conceptually and / or materially tactile and explore the boundary between having and losing control through personal existential projects or through a close relationship with the material and the strength and parallel vulnerability found here.

The exhibition includes the Norwegian artists A K Dolven, Vibeke Tandberg, Mattias Härenstam and Ane Graff, as well as the American artist Nathlie Provosty. The simultaneous collaborative exhibition with Aanestad and Melberg will present new works by the artists including textile, drawing, sculpture and painting. Read more about the exhibition here.

We look forward to seeing you at the opening!
