Unge Kunstkjennere

Unge Kunstkjennere (Young Art Connoisseurs) was started in the spring of 2017 as a meeting place for young art enthusiasts who work to make contemporary art more accessible to other young people. This year, we will have a project-based approach to Young Art Connoisseurs, where each new project will give young people the opportunity to be actively involved in the institution’s creative programme, be able to work with artists and staff, gain professional experience, meet friends and develop creative abilities. With the project, we want to help young people find their voice in contemporary art.

Våren 2023 ble Rahiima Mahamuud engasjert som produsent for et skriveprosjekt for Unge Kunstkjennere. Skriveprosjektet var knyttet til Festspillutstillingen 2023 «Gyre» av Camille Norment. Vi ønsket ungdom med ulike kulturelle bakgrunner som skribenter for UKK, med oppfordring om at de skrev med sine ord og sitt språk.

Tanken bak skriveprosjekter er basert på en nysgjerrighet rundt ungdoms tilnærming til kunst, eksempelvis hva som vektlegges når de går inn i en kunstutstilling for å skrive om den, og hvilke ord de bruker for å beskrive opplevelsen. Vi ønsket å nå all ungdom, og gjerne dem som ikke nødvendigvis er interessert i kunst eller har et forhold til kunst fra før. Prosjektet skal åpne opp for nye innfallsvinkler til hvordan man kan snakke om kunst.

TEXT WRITING: Project 2023

Do you enjoy writing? Are you curious about art?

We all have various ways of experiencing art, and we often use complex language when we talk about it. Can this be done differently? We want to know how you experience art!

Are you curious and want to explore these questions with others?
Do you want to write about art in your own words? Apply to participate in this project with Young Art Connoisseurs!
