Det Kvite Gullet (The White Gold) was an exhibition held at Kunstindustrimuseet (The Museum Of Decorative Arts And design) in October 2012. The exhibition was based on a research report from SIFO (National Institute for Consumer Research) called "Valuing Norwegian Wool". My employer was NFI (Norwegian Fashion Institute). The exhibition visualized the reports different results and areas as; the wool industry in Norway, Norwegian's identity relating to wool, history and culture, wardrobe studies and lastly innovation and design. I curated the exhibition and chose all designers, companies and different items exhibited. I worked closely with the designers and manufacturers to build the exhibition specific to its content. Together with SIFO and NFI we collaborated on textual context for the exhibition.
