Collaborations between students from Bergen Academy of Art and Design & Instituto de Artes, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro
March 12th – 17th, 2013 /
Opening: March 12th, 7pm
Georgernes Verft 12
5011 Bergen / Norway
Gallery hours: 12 – 6pm, except Friday 3 – 9pm
The exhibition is developed from research on the topic of voice, text and collectivity. It aims to question the conditions of voice, and the complex dynamics of the spoken. Central to the works is an investigation of the gaps between sound and sense, between structures of language and the sensual body, and between a physical interior and a social exterior. Voice is understood as fundamentally multiple, acting as the primary means for the poetical, and the affective exchange between oneself and the other.
The collaborations amplify such views by taking on the challenges of finding points of contact across distances and nations, and of figuring the possibility of a shared language.
Organized by Ricardo Basbaum and Brandon LaBelle, as part of the shared course “Voice, Text, Collectivity”, Bergen-Rio de Janeiro, Fall 2012. The exhibition will travel to Rio de Janeiro in May for an exhibition at Galeria Cândido Portinari.

For The Summer Sessions PNEK collaborates with V2 in Rotterdam. The Summer Sessions are short-term residencies for young artists organized by a network of cultural organizations all over the world.
The Summer Sessions offer a highly productive atmosphere with production support and expert feedback to jumpstart your professional art practice. The result is a pressure cooker in which you develop a project, from concept to presentable work, ready to show.
Are you an ambitious, early career artist, full of ideas and ready to realize your project this summer? Then apply by submitting a video, in which you briefly explain your project, the support you need and why you should be a part of the Summer Sessions.
14 April, 2013: application deadline. However, always check the page of your sponsor for specific details, there might be other deadlines.
