In 2015 Sørlandets Kunstmuseum marks its 20th anniversary through a series of celebratory events. It is natural to give our exhibition program a regional focus. Some of the museum’s most important tasks are to do research on regional art, to make it accessible to the public, and to stimulate the local art scene. This summer we open a large scale exhibition with works by living artists who have an affiliation with Sørlandet.

We have invited 33 artists working in or coming from our region, several of them working internationally. Spanning over several generations of artists using a multitude of artistic media, this will give the visitors an idea of what’s going on on the art scene here.

The artists are as follows:

Frank Brunner, Espen Dietrichson, Kristin Evensen, Jan Freuchen, Eirik Gjedrem, Marte Gunnufsen, Elisabeth Astrup Haarr, Sidsel Hanum, Erlend Helling-Larsen, Thomas Hestvold, Preben Holst, Ann Cathrin November Høibo, Gunnhilde Høyer, Elin Igland, Tom Lid, Marianne Lund, Lars Morell, Hans Otto Minge, Trond Nicholas Perry & Agata Sander, Erik Pirolt, Leonard Rickhard, Inger Johanne Rasmussen, Marit Roland, Lise Schønberg, Signe Solberg, Marthe Elise Stramrud, Barbro Raen Thomassen, Mirjam Raen Thomassen, Hedvig Winge, Tori Wrånes, Lasse Årikstad, Øystein Aasan
