9. februar til 6. mai
Dag Alveng har vært med på å etablere kunstfotografiet i Norge og har gjennom sine mange og ulike prosjekter vært med på å utfordre hva et kunstprosjekt kan være.
Surveying Dag Alveng’s career since his debut in 1979, this retrospective exhibition brings together Alvengs major series of works, such as Asylum (1979-1982), Summer Light (1980–2012), his multiple exposures from New York, and his more recent project Racing (2002-2012), with lesser known earlier works.
Dag Alveng is considered one of the first photo conceptual artists in a Norwegian context. The exhibition presents around 150 photographs in various formats, including vintage and new copies, and is the most comprehensive presentation of Dag Alveng's production so far.
His photographs are in the permanent collections of major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum Folkwang, Essen; Sprengel Museum, Hannover; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Moderna Museet, Sweeden; The National Museum and Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Norway.
The exhibition is part of the Henie Onstad photo program supported by:
