(A public program of talks and screenings will run during the duration of the exhibition will be announced soon)
The classical scene of an artist sitting or standing in his studio in front of an easel and an empty canvas used to be (and maybe still is) a valuable subject for an artwork, that scene which managed to sustain a certain position and value in art history and market. The show is trying to investigate how artists recently sees that scene and the power of artistic subjectivity by staging themselves as a subject for their projects in many different strategies, and unfolding questions related to the current self conception of artists.
“The Artist is staged” is showing works by: Ørjan Amundsen, Anne-Karin Furunes, Mahmoud Khaled, Hassan Khan, Nancy Mauro-Flude, Jon Arne Mogstad, Regina Maria Möller, Hilde Pytkowski, Greger Stolt Nilsen, Kamilla Skrinde.
