MUNCHMUSEET I BEVEGELSE – KUNSTHALL OSLO
Edvard Munch & Käthe Kollwitz
Munchmuseet on the Move – Kunsthall Oslo invites you to the first major presentation of Edvard Munch and Käthe Kollwitz side by side. Two artists whose lives and art encompassed momentous events in European history as well as personal tragedies. Munch and Kollwitz share an intensity, a concern with grief and loss. At the same time, they took different approaches to aesthetics, to politics, to life. Munch's concern is individualistic and existential; that of Kollwitz is personal and political.
Clumsy Stringency Dag Leversby

Amnesia? Amnesia? Sandra Mujinga
Who is privileged enough to forget and who is tasked to remember? Skin slathered in coconut oil laid out on psychedelic beach towels. Search: How to Turn a Sunburn into a Tan. Bright red skin blistering in the sun, boils popped and soothed with aloe, peeled skin reveals a shiny light brown (not TOO brown) complexion. All of the suffering has been worth it. The pain is forgotten.

Come after lunch, we’ve got to talk! Anawana Haloba
“They came with open eyes and their hearing wasn’t clogged! I just finished a 10 day intensive workshop on art and articulations using other methodologies outside western ideas and starting with ideas of logic based in local cultures. Our driving question through the process was: How do we raise consciousness relying on what is around us but has been ignored as a result of the systems that are in force?”

The French saying "Que vive!" can be translated directly to "what side are you on?". But the saying has evolved to have a broader meaning "Observe attentively to find the problem, solution or opportunity". In this exhibition trilogy artists and audiences are invited to be especially vigilant, keep an eye on what's happening with our globe and point out alternative directions and solutions.

A Late Night Josefine Lyche, Anders Sletvold Moe, Lars Morell
The exhibition A Late Night can be seen as a performance, as a brief but explosive single event, a final step in a process that began eight years ago, in which the artists again demonstrates a form of self-curation characterized by a flexibility and a a willingness for an exhibition to not necessarily be something that needs dictation from the outside, but which also can occur almost spontaneously when three artists and their works meet in the same room.
