From 2021-2024, KORO Public Art Norway's project STUDIO at KMD will explore studio practices and work processes in fine art, music and design.


KORO Public Art Norway's project STUDIO is part of the public art production for the Faculty's new building in Møllendalsveien 61. Its processual form connects to the installation Ephemerality – A Permanent Collection, unveiled when the building opened in 2017. STUDIO will explore studio practices, workspaces and work processes in fine art, music and design. The project aims to create collaborations across disciplines at KMD and between KMD and professional art practices, institutions and the public. Throughout history, studios have framed individual practices, teaching, professional and public exchanges.

STUDIO is curated by Merete Røstad and Hild Borchgrevink. At KORO Public Art Norway, STUDIO is headed by curator Nora C. Nerdrum. At KMD, STUDIO has a working group with members from all departments.
