ARCHIPELAGO: AN ARCHIPELAGO MIXTAPE III
For the third year in a row, Archipelago brings together an exhibition in the form of a mixtape. Overwriting the recordings of the year before, the new exhibition airs from the 29th of June 2018.
The tracks on the mixtape of this summer are newly commissioned works by six international artists and writers: Azar Alsharif (Iran/Norway), Sean Edwards (United Kingdom), Pia Eikaas (Norway/Denmark), Morten Langeland (Norway), Laura Pappa (Estonia/Netherlands) and Reinaart Vanhoe(Belgium/Netherlands). The diverse nature of their works and interests; a language between sculpture and writing, graphic design and music, brings together a mixtape with extracts of poetry, field recordings, narratives and carefully constructed soundtracks.
From the 29th of June, the mixtape will be available on http://mixtape.archipelago.space and at Hordaland kunstsenter.
Archipelago is a dynamic and flexible exhibition platform at Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen and is supported by Bergen kommune and Kulturrådet.
Hordaland Art Centre based in Bergen, Norway was established 1976 as the first artist run art centre in Norway. Its activities are based around the exhibition programme with equal emphasis on seminars, presentations and dialogue. Since 1987 Hordaland Art Centre has hosted a Nordic residency programme, from 2008 also open to international artists, curators, writers and other art professionals.
