MOMENTUM 12: Together as to gather
Curated by Tenthaus
Friday 9 June, 1 pm
Saturday 10 June, 2 pm
Galleri F 15, Albyalléen 60, Moss, Norway
We warmly welcome you to the press preview and opening of the 12th edition of MOMENTUM.
The first biennale to be curated by an art collective, MOMENTUM 12: Together as to gather includes collaborations with over 90 artists, collectives and institutions.
Tenthaus practises a gathering methodology. The intention is to begin from the practices of the artists they invite and to work from there, coming together to find the common threads of connection.
This practice expands throughout the collective’s ecosystem, both locally and internationally, to include artists, designers, editors, newspapers, artist-run galleries, international biennales, and local schools, who share a variety of art projects over the course of the biennale. Through this process, MOMENTUM 12: Together as to gather will explore what intuitively comes out of gathering people, places and times.
The MOMENTUM biennale was established in 1998 and is organised and produced by Galleri F 15. For over two decades, it has consistently supported compelling curatorial vision and operated as a platform for exploring the exhibition format, both in the Nordic context and with an international perspective.
MOMENTUM 12: Together as to gather takes place from 10 June to 8 October 2023 at Galleri F 15 on the island of Jeløy and in Moss, Norway.
