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. Despite these changes, he has stuck to; constant participation in the public debate, a restless commitment to justice, and a critical attitude towards those in power and political structures. How do these topics mirror his artworks?
This exhibition shows works from the Art Gift Håkon Bleken, which is a part of the Trondheim Art Museum's collection. The artworks exhibited are produced through a long artistic life and stretch from the early 1950s to the 2000s.
