Screen City Biennial

Various venues, Stavanger

12 - 31 Oct 2017

The first Nordic Biennial dedicated to the expanded moving image in public space, returns in October for its third edition. Entitled ‘Migrating Stories’, the Screen City Biennial 2017 takes contemporary conditions of movement as a point of departure and thematic framework for examining the complex forms of transition today. Artworks reflect upon journeys, diasporas and post-colonialism, transformation of place, and ‘alien’ realities. Hailing from several different countries across the globe, the artists’ practices will also address topics surrounding a post-oil future and migration in relation to climate change. The full programme combines exhibitions, screenings and installations of the expanded moving image with particular attention to its installation in public space. Artworks include video, audio-visual, light art, virtual and augmented reality, and computer gaming. Find out more about the Screen City Biennial from their website.
