When Drammen artist union celebrates its 150 year anniversary this summer, the doors to the expansive exhibition "When past meets present" are opened. 21 artists from Buskeruf fine arts Organisation have been selected to interpret individual historic pieces from the museums collection.
I Craft, I Travel Light is a group exhibition looking at arts and crafts, renewal and tradition, displaying works from 15 Norwegian and Russian artists. Inspired by indigenous cultures in the north, their rich tradition and ability to use local resources, the artists use barch, raindeer horns, fish skin and wood, as well as recycled items and found objects. The exhibition opened in Archangelsk in October 2016, went to Murmansk in February and opened in Tromsø in April.
