Touring exhibition on Norwegian book illustration returns to Oslo


In connection with Norway being a Guest of Honour at the Frankfurter Buchmesse in 2019, NORLA and Grafill collaborated on a touring exhibition with Norwegian book illustrations. As a finale, the exhibition is now coming to Norway, and Grafill’s premises in Oslo and will be on display January 9 – February 2.
The exhibition "Georg Grosz meets Mulysses on Slush Mountain. Modern illustration from Norway” includes work by eleven Norwegian illustrators, selected from a variety of new Norwegian picture books for both children and adults, all of which can be found in books that are translated and available in German.

During 2019, the exhibition has been shown in a number of cities in Germany and Switzerland: Berlin (2 times), Bremen, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Zofingen and Wohlen.

On display are illustrations by Lisa Aisato, Per Dybvig, Lars Fiske, Stian Hole, Bendik Kaltenborn, Åshild Kanstad Johnsen, Bjørn R. Lie, Alice Lima de Faria, Gry Moursund, Kari Stai and Øyvind Torseter, representing a rich spectrum of expressions in both technique and theme.
