Henie Onstad Triennial is produced by the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter – a leading arena for national and international art, with a central collection and a broad program of exhibitions and musical events.
Since 1968, Henie Onstad has been committed to Norwegian and international art, with a broad exhibition, music and performance program, and a central art collection. Located in scenic surroundings, HOK includes 3500 m2 of exhibition space, Lab, meeting rooms, a museum shop and Kafe Piruetten.
Henie Onstad Kunstsenter hosts 6–7 exhibitions per year, showcasing both modernism and contemporary art, while at the same time working constantly with the artistic catalogues for our exhibitions. With a distinct focus, Henie Onstad presents photography exhibitions as part of the yearly program.
Autumn 2017, Henie Onstad launched a comprehensive and long-term commitment to photography. Thus, the art center will create unique photo exhibitions with an aim to increase the engagement and knowledge about photography as art form.
Through the Henie Onstad Triennial for Photography and New Media, the Art Center will reestablish its position as a place for the photographic medium. The commitment will be an important addition to existing Norwegian institutions that prioritize the photographic medium today.Source: hok.no
