Color in the Kunsthall


Sign up for this spring’s Art Club now!

Kids from 1st to 8th grade are welcome!


The Art Club is part of Kunsthall Stavanger's main activities and aims to introduce kids to contemporary art in a fun and accessible way. We explore what contemporary art can be, and together with the kids explore what kind of experiences and tools they can bring into their own everyday lives. The kids will meet and work with artists in four workshops, one Sunday a month. In addition, they will experience all our exhibitions together with our skilled educators. At the end of the semester we make an exhibition, which will be open to family and friends.

The topic of this spring's Art Club is how we express ourselves in society. Together we will explore how we receive and share information. Inspired by this spring's exhibition, we ask how we can create new forms by repositioning those we already know. How can this help us see things from new perspectives?

We look forward to a semester with many exciting artists! Read more about this spring's Art Club and how to sign up here.

Kunsthall Stavanger in collaboration with MUNCH on workshop for youths

This fall Kunsthall Stavanger collaborated with Munchmuseet in Oslo on a workshop based on our ongoing youth project Mobilizing Citizenship! The workshop took place last week and was led by the artist collective WALK OF SHAME.


Mobilizing Citizenship is an art and educational program aimed at future adults aged 12–16. During four weekend workshops spanning one semester, a group of future adults collaborate with artists and are introduced to artistic strategies and methods. Started in the spring of 2018, Mobilizing Citizenship seeks to explore what collaboration can mean in the context of future adults working with professional artists and designers within an art institution. One of the main goals of the project is that the participants will build a sense of ownership over own voice, and identity, seeing themselves as autonomous agents with the possibility to partake in public discourse. The participants are given access to tools and methods aimed at building ownership of one's own surroundings, with a focus on how future adults can use artistic strategies to speak up and out.


WOS explores the relationship between performative and social spaces by means of visual landscapes and interactive meetings between performer and spectator. The collective is aiming to meet audiences outside the already established physical contexts of spectatorship. WOS’ visual expression combines elements such as clubbing culture, natural landscapes, trash culture, and consumerism.

Next year Mobilizing Citizenship will start up again at Kunsthall Stavanger. The curator for the spring semester is Lee Heinemann. More information is coming soon!
