Program 2015

Spring is in the air and like every year at this time we are almost ready for the season opening here in Vestfossen. In 2014, we presented a total of nine artists and launched a new educational platform – The Inforeaktor. For 2015 we have put together an exciting program we hope will engage our audience yet again.

Tech 4 Change is Vestfossen Kunstlaboratoriums main project in 2015. The project is a result of our encounter with Statoil Art Programme and the opportunity to curate an exhibition borrowing artworks from Statoils art collection. More information will come closer to the opening in May.
