24. May – 13. December 2020
For the first time, a sizable selection of works from the Christen Sveaas Art Foundation will be shown in a Norwegian museum. The exhibition Come Out! will be showing in The Twist from 24th May to 11th October.
Sveaas has been a dedicated art collector of both Norwegian and international art since the '80s, and the collection comprises more than 1700 works.
"Come Out!" is an exhibition prompted by the unique situation in which we find ourselves, and invites the audience to reclaim public and cultural spaces. The exhibition spans widely, both artistically and thematically, and aims to relay a clear message while encouraging reflection on today's society and that of the futureKurator William Flatmo
The title of the exhibition is borrowed from one of the works in the exhibition: Come Out # 13 (2015), by American artist Glenn Ligon, that deals with the rights of the individual and the community, whilst also shining a light on a dark event in American history.
The exhibition is curated by William Flatmo, Director of Christen Sveaas Art Collection with help from Kate Smith, curator at Kistefos Museum and Anja Grøner Krogstad, ass. dir Christen Sveaas' Art Collection.
