Closed for Installation

Closed for Installation

Kunsthall Stavanger is currently closed for installation. We are hard at work installing Ode to a dishrag, hymn to a tiger, the a traveling exhibition celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Norwegian Textile Artists (NTK).  

The exhibition will be on view from January 25 – March 18, 2018, and includes artwork by both emerging and well-established artists.  Ode to a dishrag, hymn to a tiger brings together historical works and newly commissioned artworks created on-site, and is a testament to the versatility of the medium and its ability to address issues ranging from major social, political, or environmental concerns to more intimate, quotidian life experiences.

The participating artists include: Nora Adwan, Gunvor Nervold Antonsen, Admir Batlak, Ask Bjørlo, Sissel Blystad, Ingrid Bodøgaard, Margrethe Kolstad Brekke, Tobias Alexander Danielsson, Line Solberg Dolmen, Kari Dyrdal, Brit Fuglevaag, Birgit Hagen, Ann Cathrin November Høibo, Else Marie Jakobsen, Gro Jessen, Nora Joung, Ingeborg Kvame, Ellen Lenvik, Gitte Magnus, Eline McGeorge, Pernille Meidell, Elin Melberg, Aurora Passero, Tove Pedersen, Hans Hamid Rasmussen, Hannah Ryggen, Ingunn Skogholt, Kari Steihaug, Camilla Steinum, Unn Sønju, Løvaas & Wagle, Carin Wessel/Birgit Wessel.

We look forward to seeing you at the opening reception!

Kunsthall Stavanger Presents Lina Viste Grønli at Untitled Art Fair

Kunsthall Stavanger is pleased to announce our participation at Untitled Art Fair in San Francisco, January 12-14. We will present new works by Norwegian artist Lina Viste Grønli (b. 1976 in Stavanger). Viste Grønli was the first artist exhibited at Kunsthall Stavanger when the institution opened in 2013.

In her latest body of work, Time Pieces, everyday objects and discarded items are transformed into timekeeping devices. By adding functioning clock hands and motors to a towel, a shoe, and a sweater, she raises awareness of the transitory nature of objects and the way in which they give meaning to concepts of time.

We're excited to announce the launch of a new online project on our website by Michael Bell-Smith. Titled 2x3-mp-2017-michaelbellsmith-full, the work is a self-pirated online version of the work 2x3 (MP), which is featured in Mall, Punk at Kunsthall Stavanger.

About the project, Bell-Smith says: 

"The versions of tv shows and movies that circulate on Youtube often do so illegally, in violation of copyright law. In an effort to combat these acts of piracy, Youtube has developed extensive algorithms to detect and automatically remove copyrighted material. In response, the communities sharing these videos (often cartoons and other media with devout fanbases) have developed elaborate methods to evade copyright detection, altering their video content by shifting its colors, flipping it left-to-right, placing it on top of another video, or obscuring it with a digital watermark. It is a game of cat-and-mouse, the video transformations getting more elaborate as Youtube’s software develops to detect them."
