Kunsthall Stavanger is proud to announce a special commission in 2021 by the vocalist, composer and artist Stine Janvin. The commission will take place in the fall of 2021.
Stine Janvin is a vocalist, composer and artist with an interdisciplinary practice based in Stavanger and Berlin. Her main interest is the voice as a key element in the exploration of sound as a physical phenomenon and physical perception in the form of conscious and / or unconscious audience participation. Through projects developed for theaters, digital media, nightclubs and art galleries, she explores performing and performance formats often dealing with dualities between the sentimental / pragmatic, natural / artificial, organic / synthetic and the minimal / dramatic.

Kids from 1st to 8th grade are welcome!
One Sunday a month, Kunsthall Stavanger facilitates a meaningful interaction with contemporary art. Here, the children explore Norwegian and international art, and produce their own works in collaboration with professional artists in four different workshops. At the end of the semester we make an exhibition, which will be open to family and friends.
The theme of this semester's Kids’ Art Club is humor: How is humor used in contemporary art today? What can we create with humor? What is the function and role of humor in art? And can jokes be art?
