BGE Contemporary Art Project was launched in the spring of 2014 as a collaboration between Kim Brandstrup, Marit Gillespie and Eli Lilleeng Ertvaag. Specialising in providing contemporary art on commission, the gallery is heavily influenced by Galleri Brandstrup in Oslo, directed and co-founded by BGE’s own Kim Brandstrup. Galleri Brandstrup has been open for 30 years and works across several international cities, such as Dubai, Brussels and Copenhagen, as it holds an enormous international network. Since the very beginning, BGE Contemporary Art Project has worked with different ornamentations in addition to exhibitions from its previous studio, Tollboden, in the centre of Stavanger.
