is an art collective and artist-run space in Oslo initiated in 2009. It's profile is characterized by an open, process-oriented form of participation from an internationally orientated group of artists. The context of contemporary art practice is re-examined through a broader field of activity with exhibitions, workshops, artist's talks and live performances.
Tenthaus (TH) has developed from an artist in school project to encompass a project room and exhibition space. TH strives for excellency in art production and facilitates. Our program includes workshops for youth with minority backgrounds, ad hoc residencies, exhibitions, and events. With the launch of Toolkit and Sessions in 2016, we aim to strengthen mediation around our work with youth and artist practice. In the next three years TH will uphold its work with children and youth as well seek to find other relevant contexts to expand and explore our socially engaged practice. Our diversity policy will be further implemented by using migrants as gallery staff and exhibition guides. TH will have a large proportion of female solo exhibitors.
HEDBERG & MOI
Anna Carin Hedberg and Ebba Moi have collaborated on several art projects since 2003. In their work, they explore cultural changes in society, and examine structures that thematise these processes of change. They both trained at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (1995-1999).
Hedberg and Moi have exhibited their art in a number of arenas: The Norwegian Sculpture Biennial at The Vigeland Museum; Kristiansand Kunsthall, the Norwegian Short Film Festival in Grimstad, Cinemateket in Oslo; The Larm Festival at The Stockholm House of Culture & City Theatre; the Autumn Exhibition at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo and through public sound work at Lørenskog House of Culture.
New Meaning (2000 - 2009), run by Gry O Ulrichsen, Ebba Moi and Anne Berntsen, was a forum based in Trondheim that aimed to give young people with intercultural backgrounds their voices and opinions to the public. New Meaning wanted to offer young people a chance to use their resources and become active contributors and creators within the society they live in. New Meaning has initiated and produced magazines, web-casts, board games, live entertainment events, and workshops.
New Meaning wished to expand its communication to help broaden the understanding and knowledge between different cultures.
