Homborsund Bryggeri


Oscarshall at Bygdø sits like a shining monument at the entrance to Oslo
and was built between 1847–1852, following the largest building project of the
19th century in Norway: The Royal Palace. Oscarshall was not only created to fulfil the function of a pleasure palace, but it can also be interpreted as the Royal Palace’s commitment to artists and the exhibiting of contemporary art and craft. The complex is considered the main work of Danish architect Johan Henrik Nebelong (1817–1871) and is the first place in Norway to be built as
a contemporary art museum.

In keeping with this tradition, The Royal Collections is delighted to present a group exhibition in Gallery Josephine and the adjacent park, in collaboration with the department of Art and Craft at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Ten international artists, who recently studied printmaking as part of the MFA in Material- and Medium-based Art, have conceived new artworks in our own time, to be exhibited in dialog with the historical palace.

The artists: Ben Clement, Hanna Halsebakke, Kamil Kak, Kari Kolltveit, Milton Mondal, Sally Nordström, Debangona Paul, Sigvei Ringvold, Maria Viirros, Anna Weilhartner.

Curator for the exhibition: Ingvar Strøm Torjuul
