Hardcore Soft

Norwegian National Museum for Art

Architecture & Design, Norway

National Touring Exhibition 2006-2007

I curated an interdisciplinary exhibition presenting works by artists who employ their “soft” craft as a sharp edged tool with which to make public their investigations into cultural politics and social consciousness – addressing attitudes towards community, conflict, class and the political body.

The exhibition opened in Union Scene, Drammen in 2006 and toured throughout Norway to art and culture spaces.

Artists: Brett Alexander (AU), Rachel Dagnell (N/UK), Bjorn Kjelltoft (S), Anita Hillestad (N), Trevor Pitt (UK), Meave Willey (UK), Fine Cell Work (UK), War Rugs Inc. (US)
