As press release courtesy Momentum, from 10 June to 8 October 2023, MOMENTUM 12: Together as to gather is curated by Tenthaus, a diverse group of artists and art workers from a variety of cultural backgrounds. The 12th edition includes collaborations with over 90 artists, collectives, and institutions from Norway and around the world and features a constellation of projects ranging from commissioned artworks to a dynamic and community-oriented live programme of discursive and spontaneous events, all of which unfold in the Galleri F 15 exhibition space, on the grounds of the gallery on the island of Jeløy, and across the city of Moss.
Tenthaus wanted to reflect this in an approach that is less about a unified curatorial standpoint, but instead more of a reflection of the complex polyphony of voices that make up collective work. There is no specific overarching theme, other than a desire to gather and share experiences. Tenthaus chose to gather what excites, inspires, and interests each of its members, assembled to see how these practices could start conversations with each other and between the collective, the artists and the community. Over the next four months, Together as to gather will be in constant flow and expansion, re-shaping its form to allow for ongoing, open, multifaceted, and elastic conversations and encounters that will seed further gatherings, encouraging us all to experience different types of togetherness, again and again.
The MOMENTUM biennale was established in 1998 and is currently organised and produced by Galleri F 15 in Moss, Norway. For over two decades, MOMENTUM has consistently supported compelling curatorial vision and operated as a platform for exploring the exhibition format, both in the Nordic context and with an international perspective.
