Art of gay love in China and the Nordic countries meet in the Historical Museum. Throughout history, gay love has manifested itself in different ways. Art can act as a mirror image of love, and the vulnerability that comes with it. In this exhibition, artists from China and the Nordic Region unfold their lives, stories, dreams and lusts.
Doors and entrances stir our curiosity and make us wonder what’s on the other side. In this exhibition we explore how portals work as thresholds between separate worlds.
How do we acquire knowledge about the past? For three years, visual artist Nina Torp has followed the archaeological investigations carried out in connection with the building of the new E18 motorway between Tvedestrand and Arendal in southern Norway.
