Join us for a jam-packed evening at the National Museum - Architecture!

The pre-party will take place in the museum's pavilion, in the installation by the Swedish art and architecture collective MYCKET.

MYCKET will give an artist talk. Katarina Bonnevier, Thérèse Kristiansson and Mariana Alves Silva will talk about their practice based on the club-inspired installation they have created in the museum. This will be a performative conversation, with elements of drag and make-up.

After the conversation, you'll have the opportunity to put on extra make-up and get ready for a party! Drag artists Briar The VaudeVillain and Kiki Helsinki, and designer and make-up artist Lars Terje Gudem Hansen, will help you at the make-up station!

DJ Soldal from Kiki house of Meraki plays B2B (back to back) with DJ Dahir after the artist talk. Throughout their set, we’ll be granted a visit from members of the Oslo ballroom scene; Thor, Hamda and Iris 007, Bodil, Celina and Karim Meraki, Gigi Angels and Vioma 007 om the mic. A universe of vogue femme, face, sex siren, runway and new way.

The pre-party is part of the public program for the exhibition Coming into Community, the National Museum's contribution to the Oslo Architecture Triennale. Coming into Community is part of the National Museum's program for Queer Culture Year 2022.

Entrance and participation is free, no booking required. First come, first served. Drinks and light snacks will be available to purchase at the museum throughout the evening.
