The year 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the repeal of a law that prohibited sexual acts between men 50 years ago, effectively decriminalising being gay in Norway. This momentous occasion will be celebrated all over the country during Queer Culture Year 2022.

Kunsthall Stavanger will honor Queer Culture Year with a new digital project consisting of four commissioned works by Olivia Douglass, Zutana Hadaddeen, Nat Pyper and virgil b/g taylor. The works will be presented as interactive projects on our digital platform, with the first premiering in December 2022, and the others to follow in February, May and July 2023.

The participants have been invited to create new works that will highlight multifaceted queer experiences, with special consideration to how they work with language as both physical and performative material.

The project is curated by Kristina Ketola Bore, Curator, Exhibitions and Educational Programs
