Her Take: (Re)Thinking Masculinity by VII Photo
MAY 18th - 26th
“Her Take: (Re)Thinking Masculinity” is a continuation of the conversation begun by the seven women photographers of VII when they first met nearly a year ago after VII voted in six new female members. The exhibition is a reflection of their commitment, with the agency’s support, to help move forward inclusive conversations about gender, power, and representation.

Being converted into skate parks, sheep sheds, or bought by other christian denominations, the traditional Norwegian prayer houses are about to disappear. Built in the latter half of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, as "the great awakening" swept across Norway, these buildings were found in every village. They were places of worship and social gatherings, hallmarks of the pietistic revival movement. In 1974 there were about 2.600 of them, spanning from Lindesnes in the south to Vardø in the north, but the last decades they have been abandoned en masse. No one knows how many are left.
