Are you an artist or producer of exhibitions? Then you are also a communicator. It might be a strong statement, but the fact is that art needs to be conveyed to reach the desired audience.


Our dream is that art will create groundbreaking headlines in the media and that our Instagram accounts will abound with dedicated followers. Can you think of three things at once: Art, social media (SoMe) and the press?


This course is about how you as an artist or small exhibition space can easily and effectively build and use a SoME profile to show art and market what you are passionate about. We will look at what it takes to make the press interested in your art.


Without communicating your art, no one has any idea what’s going on in your studio or gallery. What can you do about it?


This is what you will learn:

  • Mechanisms for effective communication and marketing in social meda channels, with the main emphasis on Instagram and Facebook.
  • Dialogue: The inherent nature and power of the SoMe channels.
  • How to use and build a good SoMe profile.
  • How to work to get media attention about art.



Course leader

Communicator, historian, author and podcaster Unni Irmelin Kvam has for many years worked with communication for various cultural institutions such as KODE, the University of Oslo, the Natural History Museum and the Vigeland Museum in Oslo. In 2021, the Vigeland Museum’s Instagram account was named “One to Watch” by the New York Times. She shares her best tricks for creating a SoMe profile, how to enter into a dialogue with followers and create a tone that makes you still get attention about what is most important in the world: art.

The course is a collaboration between VISP and Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder and is supported by Trondheim municipality.

We will have time for questions and discussions, and are aiming for a relevant workshop fitting for both beginners and experienced artists.

Erik Friis Reitan is a visual artist and PHD fellow at the Art Academy in Bergen. He recently showed the exhibition Teleportation #3 at KODE4, and has received several grants and been a part of different juries and committees. Erik likes to share his experiences, and have held several workshops on application writing and exhibition documentation the last few years.
