About the speaker

The Commons — An explorative approach to public space. Drawing the connections between how we use art on land to how we can use art to get closer to the sea, Anne Beate Hovind will share thoughts and processes behind her recent projects on land and at sea. Her new project is in collaboration with the artist and landscape architect Elin T. Sørensen and focuses on “The blue common”.

She is currently putting her expertise into city planning within Oslo; producing ambitious, large-scale, impactful, collaborative works. These projects include Future Library by the artist Katie Paterson (Scotland) for which Anne Beate is the Chair of the Future Library Trust, and Flatbread society — an urban farm by the art collective Future Farmers (USA + Belgium).

Anne Beate Hovind commissions and produces art in public spaces. Over the past 20 years, Hovind has worked at the interface of art, culture, and business and has lengthy experience working with stakeholders towards the shared vision of realising complex and original projects. This has included developing public services, building a hospital, city planning, placemaking and passenger orientated development for airports.
