Erik Sæter Jørgensen is the founder of Sæter Jørgensen Contemporary, a non-profit gallery for emerging and underrepresented art, a nomadic curatorial platform and studio practice.
Sæter Jørgensen Contemporary was established in 2018 to provide a platform for artists to realise untraditional projects while receiving the comprehensive, long-term support associated with a traditional gallery model. Before founding his current enterprise, Sæter Jørgensen was gallery manager at Galleri Opdahl, a leading contemporary art gallery in Scandinavia. Before that, he was co-curator at the project space Prosjektrom Normanns in Stavanger, Norway and an editor at NATT&DAG, a monthly urban magazine based in Norway covering music, movies, fashion and visual arts. He currently functions as online editor at Nuart Journal, a peer-reviewed open access journal presenting the work of an international network of artists, curators, academics, independent researchers and industry professionals on art in public space and related topics.
As an artist, Sæter Jørgensen has been an artist-in-residence in Berlin, Germany; Linz, Austria; and Oslo, Norway and has been included in the annual National Art Exhibition at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo. He is a member of the Young Artists’ Society and the Association of Norwegian Visual Artists.
He divides his time between Stavanger, Norway and Toulouse, France.
