Elisabeth Haarr
The Festival Exhibition 2021
27.5.–15.8.2021


More information soon

Bergen Kunsthall´s flagship exhibition, established in 1953. Each Summer, we present a large-scale exhibition with new work by a Norwegian artist, in connection with the Bergen International Festival (Festspillene i Bergen). The exhibition is considered the most important solo presentation for a Norwegian artist in their home country and creates a national debate about the state of the art, similarly to the Turner Prize in the UK.



Recent Festival Artists at Bergen Kunsthall include Marianne Heske (1993), Olav Christopher Jenssen (2000), Bjarne Melgaard (2003), AK Dolven (2004), Elmgreen & Dragset (2005), Børre Sæthre (2007), Marianne Heier (2012), Gardar Eide Einarsson (2013), Fredrik Vaerslev (2016), Ane Hjort Guttu (2015), Mari Slaattelid (2019) and Joar Nango (2020) among others.
