ART IST KUKU NU UT
15 - 17 September 2011
Ytter from Bergen have temporarily moved their office to Gallery Noorus, where they initiate The Nordic Pavilion with works by (amongst others) Jacqueline Forzelius, Haukur Már Helgason, a hangover-brunch and a pink parachute as the backdrop for a meeting between Nordic and Baltic artists and curators.
Ytter will host two public talks and a seminar where the artistic role versus the role of the curator will be discussed, and where they wish to facilitate an exchange of experiences between their Nordic and Baltic guests. During the conversations they will talk about our experiences of self-organisation within the field of art and what happens when artistic and curatorial practice becomes more and more “professionalised”. In what way is our artistic integrity affected by power relations artists and curators in between? Is self-organisation in the field of art political art, or is it just an illustration of the method of organisation?
