The Henie Onstad Triennial for Photography and New Med
1st Edition: February 21–May 17, 2020
In line with the avant-garde legacy of Henie Onstad, the triennial aims to foreground artists that are working experimentally with photography. The triennale will present photography also extending to sculpture, installations, video and VR. Referencing László Moholy-Nagy’s manifest A New Instrument of Vision (1932) and its subsequent impact on 20th-century experimental photography, the title of the triennial is NEW VISIONS.
The first edition will be curated by Susanne Østby Sæther in collaboration with Behzad Farazollahi and Christian Tunge
The Henie Onstad Photography Programme is supported by Aars, Varner, ABG, Kolonihagen and Fritt Ord.
