15 great artists from the collection

Description

This exhibition sheds new light on Henie Onstad Kunstsenter’s collection by focusing on the works of 15 individual artists, rather than highlighting art historical movements or –isms. Although best known for its strong focus on the Paris School painters, Cobra, as well as Norwegian and International Modernists, HOK’s collection has developed significantly over the last 45 years. Donated in 1968, the collection of 300 works—primarily prints, paintings and sculptures—has since grown to include over 4000 works, including textiles, installation, video and sound works.

The exhibition traces three different acquisition strategies. Firstly, HOK has consistently acquired works by artists, who have had major presentations or performances at Høvikodden. Secondly, the collection has expanded over the years through a series of donations and deposits. Last but not least, in recent years HOK has actively worked to mitigate a core collection dominated by male artists, by exhibiting and acquiring works by contemporary women artists.

Represented artists from the HOK-collection:
Magdalena Abakanowicz, Anna-Eva Bergman, Per Inge Bjørlo, Christo, Corneille, Arne Ekeland, Gunnar S. Gundersen, Asger Jorn, Tadeusz, Kantor, John Cage, Zdenka Rusova, Inger Sitter, Richard Mortensen, Ann Cathrin November Høibo, Joseph Beuys.

Curators: Milena Høgsberg and Lars Mørch Finborud
