Håkon Bleken, Protagonist-Antagonist
Håkon Bleken is one of our most prominent painters and still maintains a high level of activity. Throughout his long career as an artist, he has alternated between many expressions and styles. He has driven himself and his artistic development through various genres with a sharp eye on the present times and a genuine curiosity about art.
Learning from the artist
With the new presentation, the museum wants to make use of the knowledge that artists bring with when meeting our collection. Thus, new paths in art history shall be created — a multi-perspective, dynamic, and multi-voiced narrative of art histories. In other words: The museum learns from the artists.
