The exhibition is an important arena for Norwegian contemporary photography, and it has contributed to the promotion of camera based art both in the Norwegian cultural debate and the Norwegian art scene. The jury for this year’s Spring Exhibition was Morten Torgersrud, Kaia Hugin and Tiril Hasselknippe.
