In addition to the five artists, children from three schools will also participate in the exhibition, which will take place at Arendal's library from 7 to 25 February.
"With this art project, I want to increase a general understanding of gender creativity in children as well as an awareness of gender diversity and integration of pronouns such as hen, hin, de, dem.", Says project manager Tove-Mari Odderdal. Tove-Mari is the district coordinator for Pride Art and herself an artist and activist and participates in the exhibition with several thought-provoking works that touch.
In addition to Tove-Mari, four artists will participate and a total of around 30 works of art will be exhibited at the library in Arendal from 7 to 25 February. The library has collected literature on the topic that is available in the exhibition space. Everything to give visitors an opportunity for experiences and reflection on gender identity. The artists are a mixture of queer, straight, transgender and non-binary, but common to all is that they create art that explores and challenges prevailing gender norms.
