End the museum visit with a lecture, included in your entrance ticket!

On Thursday evening 14 September, you can learn more about the Norwegian designer and jeweler Grete Prytz Kittelsen.

In recent years, Kode has made a number of acquisitions of the Norwegian designer and jeweler Grete Prytz Kittelsen (1917-2010) for our art industry collection.

She was a key pioneer within the goldsmith trade in Norway, and helped to realize the applied arts movement's vision of "more beautiful everyday goods" for most people.

We invite you to a lecture about her significant career - which ranges from masterpieces at the Triennale in Milan in 1954 to Lotus saucepans for the "housewives in Halden".

The lecture is given by curator Morten Spjøtvold.
