About the Museum

Christen Sveaas is the grandchild of Anders Sveaas, the founder of A/S Kistefos Træsliberi. The art hall at the Kistefos Museum shows both national and international art, and collaborates with a wide range of artists, institutions and galleries. The art hall bases its activities on equity exhibitions, and has in recent years produced new exhibitions with some of today's most relevant artists.
