The 25-Year Old

Purchases for the Collection of Stavanger Art Museum 1992 – 2017

19. Oct 2017 - 08. Apr 2018

Stavanger Art Museum’s collection has doubled in size since the museum moved to its premises in Mosvann Park 25 years ago. Which works have entered the collection? Who decides what should be purchased? What are the criteria for the purchases? What possibilities and limitations has the museum had for developing its collection? 

This exhibition focuses on the museum’s own purchases of contemporary art from 1992 to today. One or two works from each year are featured. There’s also an overview of which works were purchased each year, the amount of the purchasing budget for each year, and the members of the acquisition committe.

Artists included in the exhibition:

Marit Victoria Wulff Andreassen, Natasja Askelund, Tone Kristin Bjordam, Håkon Bleken, Per Christian Brown, Sophie Calle, Per Dybvig, Anne Marthe Dyvi, Snøfrid Hunsbedt Eiene, Jens Erland, Jan Groth, Tommy Olsson og Una Henry, Jone Kvie, Roald Kyllingstad, Andrea Lange, Ma Liuming, Elin Melberg, Ulf Nilsen, Kjell Pahr-Iversen, Thomas Pihl, Aase Texmon Rygh, Torbjørn Rødland, Mari Slaattelid, Lars Traegde, Mette Tronvoll, Erling Valtyrson, Sverre Wyller, Toby Ziegler.
