IHME Recommends: KORO

For the rest of 2015, the IHME Recommends page will be introducing public art producers abroad. ENPAP, or the Enlarged Network of Public Art Producers, was initiated by director of Mossutställningar in Stockholm Stella d’Ailly. The aim of the network is to combine forces in fund-raising and sharing of professional expertise – both producing and curating – between members. IHME is happy to introduce the members of the network.

As Norway’s main agency for public art, KORO Public Art Norway ensures that as many people as possible are able to experience high quality art in public spaces nationwide. This purpose is fulfilled by producing, managing and mediating art projects in institutions such as schools, universities, political institutions, prisons, cultural centers, railway stations, health and care institutions, military camps, asylum centers and embassies. Through site-specific art, temporary artistic interventions, urban development projects as well as talks, seminars and publications, we endeavor to contribute to the development of both contemporary art and public spaces and the relation between them. In some cases, KORO is also involved in the production of memorials, such as Jonas Dahlberg’s award winning site of commemoration of the victims after the terrorist attack on the government quarter in Oslo and Utøya in 2011.
