November 24, 2022 the New York based curator Bob Nickas visited Astrup Fearnley Museet to give a lecture on the Norwegian photographer Tom Sandberg.
On the occasion of the monograph Tom Sandberg: Photographs, published by Aperture with Tom Sandberg Foundation, we invited the New York based curator Bob Nickas to held a lecture. Nickas has organized more than one hundred exhibitions since 1984, including Tom Sandberg: Photographs 1989–2006 at MoMA PS1.
The lecture is available at our YouTube channel:
Norwegian photographer Tom Sandberg (1953–2014) is considered a pioneer. A master of light in the great photographic tradition, he worked exclusively with the medium of black-and-white analogue photography. His remarkable poetic vision and expression is imbued with a strong sense of presence and mystery. Sandberg’s international recognition had its peak with the solo exhibition at MoMa PS1, New York, in 2007, curated by Bob Nickas. His work is found in a number of museums as well as public and private collections, such as the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris, and the Astrup Fearnley Collection.
The event was presented in collaboration with Tom Sandberg Foundation.
