Responding to the theme of NOUAs annual program theme Kurant Visningsrom will curate an evening of moving image and experimental films.
Kurant Visningsrom is an artist-led gallery, events and project space for contemporary art in Tromsø, established in 2009. Their mission is to be a champion of early career and emerging artists, to support the emerging contemporary, art-scene in Tromsø and to instigate and engage in discourse with the broader community. Kurant Kino is a semi-regular event open to the public, where we screen curated programmes of artists’ moving image and experimental film.
Robert Julian B. Hvistendahl materialises social structures, amplifying moments of tension, disintegration and transformation through process-based sculptures and installation. He graduated from the MA programme at Tromsø Academy for Contemporary Art, 2017 and has been a drift member for Kurant since spring, 2017.
Humle Rosenkvist is a homesick, installation artist, who uses ceramics and other media to explore socialism and collectivism - both Swedish and globally. She joined Kurant in winter 2017, and graduated from the BA at Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art in 2018.
Ruth Alexander Aitken is an interdisciplinary artist who works with ethics, climate and economics through subtle acts of resisistance and non-action. She graduated from the MA programme at Tromsø Academy of Conteporary Art in summer 2018, and has since worked for Kurant.
