The Kistefoss Museum
May 25 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pmNOK280
The Art Committee has the pleasure of inviting you to a guided tour of the Sculpture Park at the Kistefos Museum, which opens in May. The scenic sculpture park has an impressive collection of works by internationally acclaimed contemporary artists, including Anish Kapoor, Jeppe Hein, Tony Cragg, Olafur Eliasson, Fernando Bottero and Elmgreen & Dragset. The Sculpture Park, which is usually open all year, focuses on international contemporary works of art.
The Twist at Kistefos won the Leading Culture Destinations Award for Best Architecture in 2020. The fabulous new museum, designed by world-renowned architect firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), opened in September 2019. The building has been called the ‘top architectural museum project in the world’ by both the Daily Telegraph and Bloomberg. The Twist is a gallery, a bridge, and a sculpture, and the recognition that this architecturally iconic building now receives is wonderful.
Kistefos has an industrial history. It was originally a saw mill and a power station. The old industrial buildings and their machines form part of an Industrial Museum and an art gallery.
