New Visions: # 1
The inaugural Triennial for Photography and New Media at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter foregrounds practices from contemporary photography, while also articulating a keen sensitivity towards the history of photography and art. Abstraction, digital and manual collage, new configurations of still life and the human body are key tendencies. The triennial presents works from 31 artists that are produced within the last three years. Several are exhibited for the first time. This online presentation is a virtual tour in five chapters. In Chapter one we present works by: Maya Rochat, B. Ingrid Olson, Victoria Fu & Matt Rich, Hannah Whitaker, Espen Gleditsch, Asger Carlsen, Lucile Boiron, Viviane Sassen, Paul Mpagi Sepuya and Ingrid Eggen.
