Alt Går Bra Logo

Alt Går Bra pursues affirmative aesthetic forms, elaborated through philosophical and historical inquiries. Alt Går Bra’s work is conceived and produced collectively by its two members, rendered in formats including painting, installation, discursive, and writing.

Its exhibitions, discursive events, and publications portray Classicism and Romanticism as deep structuring principles, well beyond the realm of aesthetics. Reviving forgotten techniques and subjects, Alt Går Bra explores today’s artistic potential of the figurative and the beautiful.

Founded in 2015, Alt Går Bra is based in Paris and Bergen, where the group runs its own gallery. Its work has been presented at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Palais de Tokyo, University of Westminster, KODE Bergen Art Museum, and Bergen Kunsthall.

For documentation and images of Alt Går Bra's tangible work, please see Catalog of Works 2017-2022


ONGOING PROJECTS


Paintings

Alt Går Bra produces paintings using traditional oil painting techniques. These works explore classical and folk art, interrogating the ideas of tradition and progress. For further information and documentation, see Catalog of Works 2017-2022.


Textile Works

Inscribed in the tradition of seamstresses and embroiderers, the textile work of Alt Går Bra reflects upon gender dynamics, scrutinizing the value of labor and handcraft in contemporary art. Alt Går Bra’s textile works are situated in the boundaries between the artistic and the functional, reflecting upon the difference between arts and crafts, together with the mutual influences between institutionally consecrated artwork and decorative objects with concrete functionality in the private and public realms. For further information see Catalog of Works 2017-2022.

About Alt Går Bra

Alt Går Bra pursues affirmative aesthetic forms, elaborated through philosophical and historical inquiries. Alt Går Bra’s work is conceived and produced collectively by its two members, rendered in formats including painting, installation, discursive, and writing.

Its exhibitions, discursive events, and publications portray Classicism and Romanticism as deep structuring principles, well beyond the realm of aesthetics. Reviving forgotten techniques and subjects, Alt Går Bra explores today’s artistic potential of the figurative and the beautiful.

Founded in 2015, Alt Går Bra is based in Paris and Bergen, where the group runs its own gallery. Its work has been presented at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Palais de Tokyo, University of Westminster, KODE Bergen Art Museum, and Bergen Kunsthall.


Alt Går Bra has been kindly supported by: Norwegian Arts Council Norsk Kulturråd, KORO Public Art Norway, OCA Office of Contemporary Art Norway, Vestland County (Vestland Fylkeskommune), Bergen City Council, Fritt Ord, Billedkunstnernes Hjelpefond, Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond, Arts Council England, UK National Heritage Fund, and the Norwegian embassies in London and Paris.
