Your art experience
To experience Sámi art up close, and through it to gain a deeper understanding of the Sámi culture and worldview, we invite you to visit the Sámi Centre for Contemporary Art (Sámi dáiddaguovddáš, SDG). The centre, which has the largest art gallery in Finnmark County, is situated in idyllic surroundings in the heart of Karasjok.
We offer guided tours that give you insights into the exhibition themes, as well as the artists’ techniques and perspectives, while encouraging you also to interpret their works in your own way. The centre showcases contemporary Sámi art – art that addresses our own time and modern concerns. You will see works that are coloured by today’s society, politics and culture at large, but which are rooted in the Sámi heritage and convey its rich history.
This season we have an exhibition of duodji, the traditional Sámi handicrafts. There is also an art-film programme (18 minutes), as well as an exhibition of Elisabeth Meyer’s historical photos of Karasjok.
