Tom Sandberg in New York
It is the first time that a Scandinavian artist has had a solo exhibition at the renowned gallery P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, an affiliate of the Museum of Modern Art. The exhibition displays 40 of Sandbergs photographs from his 20-year-long career.
After viewing the exhibition, the Crown Princess made the following statement to the media:
This exhibition is an important event in Norwegian contemporary art. The photographer Tom Sandberg is the first Scandinavian to have his own exhibition at P.S.1. I have followed Sandberg and his work over several years. The acknowledgement he has received here in New York makes me proud and happy on Norway's behalf.
“If there is one piece of advice I would give you today, as King, godfather and grandfather, it is this: Be yourself,” said His Majesty The King in his speech at the luncheon celebrating the confirmation of Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra.
Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra was confirmed today in the Palace Chapel, just as her father, grandfather and great-grandfather were before her.
