12 October – 3 November 2007
This fall, UKS and Black Box Theatre have joined forces to present a performance program over four oval weekends in October and November. In all 36 artists – 26 Norwegian and 10 foreign – will perform 30 performances in the gallery, the theatre hall, and foyer. Somebody once said that performance is an art form that needs addressing every fifth year. There might be something to it. These days, artists involved in UKS and Black Box projects keep returning to performance, and in very different ways. With visual arts and the art of theatre on each side, performance is a natural collaboration between a gallery and a theatre. We hope that the respective audiences of these two institutions will come together and reflect upon the art of performance.
