Education

Elvebakken utstilling


In the spring of 2013 Fotogalleriet was pleased to announce the beginning of a new friend school project with Elvebakken VGS. The project was initiated as part of Fotogalleriet's new educational program aimed at children and young people, and was in close collaboration with The media and communications studies at Elvebakken high school.

The photographs and photo books in the exhibition are from the students of photography, created under the guidance of teachers at Elvebakken, Fotogalleriet's staff and photographer Morten Andersen. In addition, the students was responsible for the marketing, curating and mounting of the exhibition.

The project explores new education methods related to the gallery. By opening the gallery for the students' own pictures Fotogalleriet want to develop and challenge established understandings of art mediation. Fotogalleriet want to be in an active dialogue with the audience, and the friend school program is part of Fotogalleriet's education strategy aimed at children and young people. The project encourages the participation and discussion, and in this sense it is also important for realizing art's role in society for challenging and creating meaning.

The exhibition was opened by Olemic Thommessen, Member of Parliament and member of the Family and Cultural Committee
