The Stenersen Museum, which is located right in the heart of the capital, is part of the City of Oslo’s Art Collections. It houses three private art collections, all of which were donated to the city at one time or another: Rolf E. Stenersen’s Collection, Amaldus Nielsen’s Collection and Ludvig O. Ravensberg’s Collection. Exhibition space in the Museum totals about 1800m2, spread over three floors.
The Museum also organises exhibitions of Norwegian and international art, mainly of a contemporary nature.
Forthcoming exhibitionsHenrik Saxgren War and Love
February 7 - April 27
Photography - About immigration to the Nordic countries
War and love has literally brought these people to the remote cold north. Why did they wish to settle that far north, many of them close to the Polar Circle? The Danish photographer Henrik Saxgren has potraited more than 80 immigrated families in their new homes.
2 Move / Migratory Aesthetics
March 27 - May 11
Migratory Aesthetics conserns the movement of people and the movement of images and how both movements, real and imagenary, provoke 'movements of sprit' or 'imotions'. It is, then, a double movement: images which move and which move us.
The aesthetic dimension of the exhibition develops in two directions: the influence of immigrants in the culture of host countries, especially in the public space; and the influence of these countries in the subjective relationships of immigrants with their homelands.
