The Momentum Biennial Gathers Nordic Art Around the Theme of Emotion
PUBLICATION Art in America
DATE October 2019
Curators Marti Manen and Anne Klontz have organized the tenth edition of Momentum, a biennial dedicated to contemporary art from the Nordic region, around the theme of emotion, attempting to “redefine the possibility of feeling” in an age rife with its algorithmic manipulation by Silicon Valley. Works by twenty-nine artists are installed at Moss’s Galleri F 15 and Momentum Kunsthall, as well as outdoor sites around the city. The show looks to both the past and the present, taking stock of the biennial’s history in honor of its twentieth year. New commissions by artists who have never shown at the biennial before stand alongside works that were included in past editions.
