The KaviarFactory is an international venue for contemporary art in Henningsvær, Lofoten. The current exhibition PAINTING | OR | NOT displays 39 artists from big parts of the world.
Located in Henningsvær, in the middle of the archipelago of Lofoten, Norway, it takes advantage of its off-the-grid location and aims to offer experiences and confrontations that never previously have been available to such regions.
The current exhibition, PAINTING |OR | NOT, focus on how the terms and understanding of painting is currently being reformulated and challenged it is a proposition for an open conversation rather than an attempt at a definite conclusion.
