Bergen-based artist Amber Ablett (b. 1986, UK) kicks off our 2021 exhibition program with Rehearsal for A Change Gonna Come, which opens on Friday, 29 January. In her solo show at UKS, the Bergen-based artist looks to her sense of multi-belonging as a mixed-race woman. Ablett’s exhibition will include time- and space-specific workshops as well as a performance and video work presented as an audio and video installation.
