“A black hole at the heart of the dwarf galaxy Henize 2-10 is creating stars rather than gobbling them up.”
- NASA Jan 19, 2022. (Editor, Andrea Gianopoulos)
A new discovery was announced by NASA in January 2022. The galaxy Hezine 2-10 contains a black hole unlike any seen before: Instead of consuming stars, it produces them. While the past couple of years have been something of a black hole, they have also been a time of re-evaluation and re-birth.
minus plus minus equals plus – the 2022 degree show for the Medium and Material-based Art, and Art and Public Space pathways of the Art and Craft department of Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO) – considers how challenging circumstances may stimulate surprising new understanding. The culmination of the MA studies of the twenty-nine graduating artists, this exhibition offers a rich mix of creative ideas, materials, concepts, and processes that embody their hopes for what lies ahead, be those political, social, environmental or personal.
minus plus minus equals plus has been curated by Nicholas John Jones (Founder and director of PRAKSIS, Oslo) and the graduating artists together with members of the KHiO Arts and Craft team.
