Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Høvikodden (NO)
Triennial: February 21 - May 17, 2020 - extended till September 13, 2020
The inaugural Triennial for Photography and New Media at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in Norway will bring together recent work of 31 international artists showcasing recent experimental developments in photography and camera-based art. It will be the first major international presentation of its kind in Norway and will fill all three gallery spaces of the ground floor at the museum.
This year's edition foregrounds practices that acknowledge the fluctuating and networked condition of contemporary photography and society more generally, while also articulating a keen sensitivity towards the history of photography and art. Abstraction, digital and manual collage, new configurations of still life and the human body are key tendencies. The works on view are produced within the last three years and several are exhibited for the first time.
New Visions refers to the program for a New Vision developed by László Moholy-Nagy in the interwar period, and that greatly impacted experimental photography throughout the 20th-century.
