The Coming Into Community exhibition opens in September at the National Museum – Architecture at Bankplassen. The exhibition is the National Museum’s contribution to Oslo Architecture Triennale 2022 and is part of the museum’s Queer Culture Year programme.
The exhibition is about inclusion and exclusion. How have architecture and urban planning been influenced by ideas about community? Why do we feel safe in particular spaces? Can architecture help nurture interpersonal relations? How is community important in LGBTQ+ circles?
The exhibition consists of an installation in the Pavilion by the Swedish architecture and art collective MYCKET and an exhibition in the Bucher Room. The event is part of Queer Culture Year 2022.
The opening event at the National Museum – Architecture will include speeches and interventions by artists including the drag queen Penetra Schön. Refreshments will be served.
