This event has ended.

Pilgrimsferd til Nidaros is an exhibition comprised of several elements, one being paintings celebrating the arrival of spring loosely based upon the study of 19th century Norwegian Folk Art. The paintings focus more specifically on the art form of Rosemaling (Norwegian for rose painting), an form of decorative folk art that originated in the rural valleys of Norway. The second element of the exhibition is a Norwegian Stabbur house focusing on Nidaros, as Northern Europe's most important Christian pilgrimage site during the Middle Ages, the goal of pilgrims being the Nidaros Cathedral. Lastly, the exhibition will cover Viking art pre and post Christianity in paintings and animation. A puppet play based on the 18th century Norwegian Fairytale The Boy who went after the North Wind will be performed each night with life size puppets in Bunraku style with accompanying animation and live score by Jeffrey Leiser.
