Kvorning lands new exhibition job in Norway

In international competition The Museum Foundation of Grimstad in Southern Norway chose Kvorning design & communication to create a permanent exhibition about fellow townsman Morten Smith Petersen (1817-1872) – one of the first and most influential Norwegian ship-owners, who also practiced law and politics.

Kvorning Design & Communication will design the exhibition about Morten Smith Petersen’s significant influence on local, national and international matters. The setting will be Hasseldalen in Grimstad, which Smith Petersen bought in 1848. Here, his ships were crafted and he built his shipping business.

As a ship-owner and businessman Smith Petersen was a keen advocate of modernizing and professionalizing the Norwegian shipping trade and as a politician he believed strongly in free trade and the “autonomy of the shipping companies”. Smith Petersen was also co-founder of Det norske Veritas (DNV) in 1864.

The exhibition in Hasseldalen, Grimstad in Southern Norway is planned to open 1. September 2015.

Deadline for entering the competition is 19 December 2014.

’We think that exhibitions have very special qualities. They can help put socially relevant themes on the agenda, they might spark debates, they can spread new light upon, or provide multiple perspectives on our history and they give their audiences outlooks and insights. We look forward to rewarding new, visionary ideas, and we hope that this kind of competition will set off a discussion about the nature of the good exhibition.

Kvorning Design & Communication is of course thrilled to hear about the competition. Exhibitions as a media deserve more attention, and ‘Vision’ will undoubtedly contribute to that.
