For those who have just discovered Kristiansand Kunsthall, the gallery perched on top of the city’s library may seem like the city’s best-kept secret. But the gallery, which originates from one of Norway’s oldest art associations, Christianssands kunstforening, has been active since 1881. Today, the art association’s 800-piece collection is stored and displayed at the regional museum, Sørlandets Kunstmuseum. Since its rebrand as a kunsthall in 2012, Kristiansand Kunsthall has focused on exhibiting contemporary art, primarily by current Norwegian and international artists.
