#10 HOW TO PRACTICE?
Considering collegial exchange, informal peer-to-peer/practice-to-practice learning, and attempts at friendship as a fundamental part of our remit, UKS presents the weekly walk-in-workshop: HOW TO PRACTICE?
Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am, rotating local and international artists teach their conspicuous version of this essential question—HOW TO PRACTICE?—serving up their tricks and toolboxes, angry birds, excel, or yoga as UKS serves free coffee.
For UKS’ tenth walk-in-workshop, on Monday, 29 March at 10am, Oslo-based artist TERJE NICOLAISEN (b. 1964) will talk about confirmation and refusal, non-action and compulsory procedures, collaboration and undesigned humor as driving tools within his idiolect of painting and drawing—as well as his long association with Tegneklubben, the draughtmens’ club.
In 2019 Nicolaisen will take part in the exhibitions Civilkurage at Plum Trim in Nesodden; Tegneklubben (Oil) at Prosjektrom Normanns in Stavanger; and Ser du tegninga? at Sørlandets Kunstmuseum in Kristiansand. Recent exhibitions include Tegneklubben + Håkon Bleken at Trondheim Kunstmuseum; Nordiske Relasjoner at Bomuldsfabriken Kunsthall in Arendal; and Drawing for Freedom at the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Berlin.
Need a way to start your week? Join the ongoing program raising questions of trauma, truisms, privilege, priorities, refusal, collaboration, honesty, pretension, working rhythms, blockages, blind spots, sleep, craft, dignity, conspiracy, accounting, body, theory, bureaucracy, ex-and-inclusion, collectivity, how to take time off and how not to, professionalization, performance, and pace.
