CANON NO CANON
International conference organised by NIA and OCA
November 23 at the Vigeland Museum, Oslo.
Does art from the Nordic region have a place in what has been considered as a
global canon? Which mechanisms are deciding the place of certain
regions, or groups, in an overall art history? What tensions, if any,
are particular to the Nordic canon (/canons)?
Fairs, biennials and similar big events are important, as they often give us a representative overview of the art world. What the Venice biennial is for contemporary art, one could claim that TEFAF is for historical art.

Essay by Joakim Borda-Pedreira
Inger Johanne Grytting: Selected Works
Inger Johanne Grytting (b. 1949 in Lofoten), left her Native Norway in 1970 to study art in New York. Soon she settled permanently and became a part of the pulsating arts community that emerged on Manhattan in the 70s and 80s. She received first-hand impulses from the Abstract Expressionists and gradually developed an aesthetic that today is often described as post-minimalist, as it merged the sparseness of Minimalism with an intuitive and emotive approach.
