MATERIAL IN MIND
29.04 - 29.10
Kistefos presents the first major exhibition in Norway of works by the pre-eminent British sculptor Sir Tony Cragg. The exhibition in The Twist will include key works from the Christen Sveaas’ Art Foundation and Collection, exploring the interplay between materials, forms, negative and positive spaces, whilst pushing to find new relations between people and the material world.

Nybruket Gallery, 1st Floor
The exhibition COPY PASTE explores the integration of text in contemporary artworks whilst reflecting on the arbitrary nature of linguistic signs and questioning the origin and interpretation of text and image. In a time where computer-generated content threatens the authenticity of the written word, the theme of the exhibition embraces the zeitgeist whilst offering an arena to exhibit a selection of the most iconic works from the Christen Sveaas Art Foundation.
29.04 - 15.10
Nybruket Gallery, 2nd Floor
The second floor of Nybruket Gallery has been newly renovated to offer an additional gallery space at Kistefos. The upper floor of the industrial building retains its original features including beams and windows, providing a historical backdrop to this years' exhibition: Tracing Absence.
The Twist is designed by the architects in Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and is a unique exhibition space with varied light sources and a view of the Randselva river. The gallery twists at the midway point into a sculptural form, crossings the river in a 60-meter span.
