Oslo Art Weekend & review of Sandra Mujinga @ Oslo Kunstforening

In mid-October 2016 I had my first trip to Norway as part of the Oslo Art Weekend visiting critics program.

Some highlights included, in alphabetical order: Nina Bang's solo show Birding at Kunstplass[10]; Ragna Bley's work in the group show Roaming at Unge Kunstneres Samfund (UKS); Benjamin Crotty's solo show at VI, VII; Tora Dalseng's solo show Lucky Night at Noplace; Elisabeth Haarr's solo show Strid at Kunsthall Oslo; Lotte Konow Lund's solo show Hold Everything Dear at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter; the project space Louise Dany, run by Ina Hagen and Daisuke Kosugi; the late Sidsel Paaske's retrospective On the verge (curated by Stina Högkvist) at the Museum of Contemporary Art; the exhibition space SCHLOSS, founded by artist Ida Ekblad and journalist Marie-Alix Isdahl Voisin; and the group show Kreuzberg Mega Show at artist-run gallery Slursula, which is located on a boat, especially the works by Liv Ertzeid, Melanie Kitti, Helena Lund Ek, and Urd J. Pedersen!
