Kunsthall Stavanger invites you to the opening of The Only Way is Up, Friday, August 26 at 18:00. The exhibition is curated by Kunsthall Stavanger's Interim Director Maya Økland, and many of the artists will be present at the opening. 

There is no doubt that society as we know it is changing rapidly, in terms of demographics, economics, and climate. In our current era, established principles and ethical codes are at risk as Europe faces increasing challenges from xenophobia, economic shifts and environmental decline. The group exhibition at Kunsthall Stavanger presents artworks that in various ways relate to and problematize current political crises and instability.

Participating artists include Vanessa Baird, Katy Grannan, Otto Karvonen, Linda Karin Larsen, Irene Nordli, Maiju Salmenkivi, Mekdes W. Shebeta, Jorunn Myklebust Syversen, Kristin Tårnes, Jared Theis, and Tarald Wassvik.

We look forward to seeing you at the opening!
