At the end of the book is an essay written by Åsmund Torkildsen, curator at Drammens Museum, who analyses Alveng’s project as style site, the journey from the racing track to a photographic project, to an installation at the exhibition which opened in Drammen the 23 of February 2012.
Dag Alveng is the only contemporary Norwegian artist represented both in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Not least, he has been involved in raising attention for fine art photography in Norway and was among the founders of Foto Galleriet in the 1970s. As the prolific photographer he is, Alveng has had major exhibitions at the Henie-Onstad Art Centre and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Dag will be signing his book /Racing/ at the PUG BookCafé
