THE MUSEUM AS A CANON


by Knut Ljøgodt , December 8, 2018

The discourse of the canon is highly relevant to the art field, and was the topic for a recent conference organised jointly by NIA – Nordic Institute of Art and OCA – Office for Contemporary Art Norway: ‘Canon No Canon: Rethinking Nordic Art’ at the Vigeland Museum. The conference’s programme included talks as well as a debate, with contributions by chief curator and senior researcher Dorthe Aagesen, SMK – National Gallery of Denmark; curator Christopher Riopelle, National Gallery of London (NIA Associate Fellow); curator Carl-Johan Olsson, National Museum of Stockholm (NIA Associate Fellow); ass. prof.

Inger Johanne Grytting: Selected Works


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.
