“Munchmuseet on the Move” Tuesday, November 3, 2015 6:308pm ISCP 1040 Metropolitan Ave. Brooklyn, NY FREE and open to the public Natalie Hope ODonnell will present some of the thinking behind the commissioning of artists for the first year of Munchmuseet on the Move (2016-2019). This four-year program of contemporary art projects takes place before the relocation of the Munch Museum from its existing premises at Tøyen, built in the 1960s, to the waterfront development of Bjørvika. The Munch Museum is moving a mile down the road, through the diverse neighbourhood of so-called Old Oslo. One of the aims of the programme is to establish new relationships with the locality without essentializing the potential of audience development through the everyday notion of neighbourliness and long-term dialogue. Adopting what might be described as a queer curatorial approach, Hope ODonnell has commissioned artists who engage with marginalized voices, alternative histories, semi-concealed spaces and different ways of navigating the city for the 2016 edition of Munchmuseet on the Move. Offsite Hub event, in collaboration with the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) and with the support of OCA: Office for Contemporary Art Norway. Hope O’Donnell is currently a curator in residence at ISCP. This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP to email@example.com with NATALIE in the subject line.
