Prosjektrom Normanns is closing 01.01.2020

Prosjektrom Normanns is closing down 01.01.2020, after nine years activity. At our Normanns space, and through projects nationally and internationally, we have combined executed 57 projects, with 131 artists and curators - 77 women and 54 men - from 14 different countries. It has been fantastic, valuable and intense. We are now looking forward to more studio time.

“Working with Prosjektrom Normanns has been amazing. We have been very fortunate to collaborate with strong and talented artists and curators, who all have become part of our social project and large network, where love for the arts has been key. We have learned and experienced a lot, and achieved things we never would have imagined. We are deeply thankful for every part of this artistic journey”, says a unified board; Elin Melberg, Helene Ødegaard and Margrethe Aanestad.

To run an artist-run space is professionally very rewarding, but it also demands a lot of time and focus away from our personal careers as artists. Prosjektrom Normanns has the past years reached a high level of professionalism, and as a consequence, the non-for-profit in reality requires at least two full time positions and our full attention”, says Melberg and Aanestad."We are first and foremost artists, and we have been artists promoting other artists for almost a decade. Now it is time to focus 100% on our own careers. Having that said - we are open to engage with interesting external curatorial projects as a duo in the future.”

Peace out, Prosjektrom Normanns.
