Anne Hilde Neset appointed new director of Oslo's Kunstnernes Hus

The Wire's company director and ex-Deputy Editor will take up the post in June

Kunstnernes Hus, the Oslo based artist-run exhibition space and cinema, has announced that its new director will be The Wire contributor and company director Anne Hilde Neset. Anne currently works as artistic director of nyMusikk and she’s also a host of Late Junction on BBC Radio 3. “Kunstnernes Hus has a historic atmosphere and can accommodate a kind of interdisciplinary thinking that is not often found in Oslo,” she says. “It can showcase diverse art forms at the same time, and is an ideal space in which to examine issues from many different angles – exhibitions, film, talks and music. I see it as a place for cultural exploration, exchange of ideas and opinion-forming – as a place that’s not only great fun, but where it feels important to be.”

Kunstnernes Hus held The Wire and nyMusikk's Off The Page literary festival in Norway for three years running before its move to Bergen's Landmark Bergen Kunstall.
