Curator, educator and researcher, Christina Zetterlund, is Norwegian Crafts' Curator in Residence in 2024–2026

Norwegian Crafts has the pleasure of having Christina Zetterlund as the organisation's Curator in Residence 2024–2026. The collaboration will build upon and continue the work of our former curators in residence Namita Wiggers (2017), Joar Nango (2019) and Zoe Black (2020–2023). During the two-year collaboration, Norwegian Crafts and Christina Zetterlund will work on different types of programming, taking her approach to site-based methods of listening and learning beyond given hierarchies and institutionalised concepts as a starting point.

Christina Zetterlund collaborated with Norwegian Crafts and the Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts (NK) on the programming of the seminar Craft as a meeting place at the National Museum in Oslo in October 2023 followed by three individual workshops.
