Robel Temesgen - Adbar


Exhibition opening October 15 at 19:00

Adbar is an abstract Amharic term for the embodiment of a spirit connected to a specific community, it exists within nature – for example; Adbar can be embodied by a tree, a lake, a mountain or a rock. Adbar serves many communal purposes, most notably, as a place for prayer, as a meeting point for rituals and offerings, and as a place for resolving discrepancies.

Jos McKain / Tor Erik Bøe: Spring Exercises


May 15th at 21:00

It’s spring, we’re crawling out of hibernation, grabbing a beer on the way, stretching our muscles. Our blood is flowing again.

«Spring exercises» is the first collaboration between Los Angeles-based dancer and choreographer Jos McKain and Oslo-based artist Tor Erik Bøe. Inspired by the Norwegian russ-celebration, «Spring exercises» will first be performed in Tromsø at Kurant Gallery, then later in Oslo.

And of course, after show: party.
Warning:Warning: The party will have a russ theme. Deal with it.
