Kunsthall Stavanger
Stavanger, Norway

Kunsthall Stavanger is a contemporary art institution that serves as a platform for the production, exhibition, and distribution of artworks that are part of a large international discourse. We collaborate with artists and guest curators to develop solo and group exhibitions with the goal of creating transformative experiences and in depth audience engagement. We hope to welcome a broad and diverse audience and have therefore established an art library and special programming for children in addition to our regularly scheduled exhibitions. Our website functions as our second exhibition space, featuring online projects, documentation and behind the scenes material from our activities.

We recognize and actively contribute to the global network of the contemporary art world. However, our most important audience is in Stavanger, and we aim to become an important local meeting place for the viewing and discussion of contemporary art.

    A searing, diaristic portrayal of a city and society in revolution by Magnum nominee Myriam Boulos.

In the context of the emerging women’s movement in the USA during the 1960s and 70s, and as a freelance photographer at a time when print media was suffering its first major crisis, Mark fought her way to the forefront of female voices in photojournalism.

    A year. That’s how long it’s been since Karla Hiraldo Voleau’s exhibition Another Love Story first opened at the MEP in Paris in 2022.
