22. April - 17. September 2023

The nominees for Lorck Schive Kunstpris 2023 are:

The four artists nominated to the Lorck Schive Kunstpris 2023 all represent the spearhead of Norwegian contemporary art and will make new works of art for an exhibition that opens in April 2023 at Trondheim kunstmuseum. Lorck Schive Kunstpris has received international attention for its unique collocation and presentation of the best contemporary art in Norway today, and there is no reason to doubt that the coming exhibition shall do the same.

In 2023 Lorck Schive Kunstpris will be awarded for the sixth time. The prize is a collaboration between Christian Lorck Schive og Hustrus legat (i.e. the Lorck Schive legacy) and Trondheim kunstmuseum.


The Association of Norwegian Visual Artists, Trondheim kunstmuseum, Norwegian Critics’ Association and The Norwegian Association of Curators nominate a total of 11 artists.

The board of the Lorck Schive and Spouse Trust selects four of these artists who are invited to participate in the prize exhibition at TKM. The artists receive NOK 150,000 each to produce the exhibition. 

An international and independent jury chooses an artist who receives the prize of NOK 500,000.
