Pavilions Without Walls - Norway

The Pavilions Without Walls, a new Performa initiative modeled on the idea of the Venice Bienniale's pavilions, were created to forge strong partnerships between New York and countries around the world, allowing Performa to foster deeper levels of cultural and artistic exchange. The strategy of the inaugural year's Norwegian Pavilion is specifically to highlight cultural producers in Norway and present some of the country's most outstanding artists. The program is co-curated with leading institutions such as Ny Musikk, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK), Kunsthall Stavanger, Kunsthall Oslo, Hordaland Art Centre, Entrée and Unge Kunstneres Samfund (UKS), in collaboration with the directors and curators there.
