Studio Visits: Brit Fuglevaag

A studio visit with Brit Fuglevaag, talking about her career as a textile artist and upcoming exhibitions at Kunstnerforbundet and Soft Gallery

In this film, Brit Fuglevaag talks about her career as a textile artist, from her time working and living abroad, and her experience with teaching. We learn about the variety of techniques and materials used in her works, and her upcoming solo exhibitions at Kunstnerforbundet and Soft Galleri in Oslo, opening in August 2021.

Brit H. Fuglevaag
(b. 1939) has been one of the most prominent textile artists in Norway since the 1970s. In addition to her own artistic practice, she has contributed to the development of the Norwegian textile art scene as a professor and through political advocacy. Inspired by her time at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (1963-1964), Brit’s belief in how textile making should be considered within a contemporary art context has been a powerful influence in the positioning of textile art in Norway.
