Lizzie Fitch / Ryan Trecartin at Astrup Fearnley Museet (Oslo)
The main hall of Astrup Fearnley Museet is transformed into an interior sculpture garden, framing artworks that address themes of identity and self-staging in today’s world of digital media.
Lizzie Fitch (b. 1981) and Ryan Trecartin (b. 1981) met in 2001 while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design, and have collaborated closely ever since. In 2006 Trecartin, at the age of 25, became the youngest artist included at the Whitney Biennial. The two artists have presented exhibitions at venues such as MoMA PS1 in New York (2011), Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2011), and Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin (2014), and have also participated in prestigious exhibitions including the New Museum Triennial (2009), the Venice Biennale (2013) and the Berlin Biennale (2016). After having lived and worked in Los Angeles for a number of years, the artists are currently based in Athens, Ohio.
