Tenthaus is an art collective and artist-run space in Oslo initiated in 2009. It’s profile is characterized by an open, process-oriented form of participation from an internationally orientated group of artists. The context of contemporary art practice is re-examined through exhibitions as well as a broader field of discursive activity such as radio, dinners, workshops for youth, residency, events and collaborations.
Tenthaus has developed from an artist in school project to encompass a project room and exhibition space using socially engaged art as a platform for expanding and exploring our practice. Tenthaus wishes to uphold its work with children and youth as well seek to find other relevant contexts to expand and explore our socially engaged practice. With the launch of P1 – mobile residency, which is touring in Norway 2019-22, we aim to strengthen mediation around our work with youth and artist practice. Our diversity policy will be further implemented by using migrants as gallery staff and exhibition guides.
Tenthaus is supported by the Norwegian Arts Council and Oslo kommune.
