Festival Exhibition

Joar Nango

Past events:
Sami-Norwegian Joar Nango is regarded as one of Norway's most interesting artists and has over the past decade developed an impressive interdisciplinary practice that touches on global high-level issues. 

Joar Nango's Festival exhibition was postponed from May and opened on 4 September 2020. In the festival period, Joar Nango presented a TV series in three parts about architecture after the fall of capitalism. Click her to watch the tv series, or scroll down for the first episode. 

Nango's artistic practice explores the boundaries between design, architecture, philosophy and visual arts, with an emphasis on indigenous identity, climate issues and marginalization of ethnic groups. His work is often based on observed contradictions in contemporary architecture inspired by the informal building traditions in the north.

The Bergen Kunsthall festival exhibition consists of new works, produced specifically for the exhibition.

The Festival exhibition is one of Norway's most important contemporary art exhibitions and is regarded as the most prestigious assignment for a Norwegian artist in their home country. The exhibition has been curated and shown in Bergen Kunsthall every year since 1953.
