Vestlandsutstillingen 2016

Local Negotiations


Vestlandsutstillingen is an annual traveling exhibition that highlights artists living or working in western Norway. This year's exhibition is titled Local Negotiations and looks closely at what the term local suggests. An increasing number of phenomena now transcend cultural, geographical and political borders. New networks and groups are rapidly forming that could not have previously been imagined, and the idea of 'the local' has changed rapidly. In what way are artists navigating new ideas of home, and is the focus on locality an attempt to locate oneself in the here and now?

In conjunction with the exhibition, there will be a performance by Kurt Johannessen on Saturday, June 11. 

Anne-Lise Stenseth, Annette Kierulf, Aud Bækkelund, Cato Løland, Cecilia Jonsson, Christine Hansen, Dani Waagen Braatveit, Elin Brissman, Gard Aukrust, Jonas Silfversten Bergman, Kiyoshi Yamamoto, Kurt Johannessen, Leander Djønne, Linda Soh Trengereid, Mari Kolbeinson, Synneva Heradstveit, Tonje Bøe Birkeland, Trond Lossius & Jan Schacker, Øyvind Johnsen, Åsne Eldøy, & Co (Patrik Entian og Aleksi Wildhagen).

Curated by Sveinung Unneland and Lars Korff Lofthus
