Hordaland Kunstsenter Residency Programme (Norway)
Hordaland Kunstsenter Residency Programme

In 2017 Hordaland kunstsenter will present a themed artist-in-residence programme that focuses on the various incarnations of writing in connection with art. Although art criticism has dominated the canon of art-writing in the 20th and early 21st century, non-expository, ‘involved’ forms of writing have long existed alongside the plastic arts. In the present this is evident in the increasing visibility of contemporary literary forms such as the artist’s novel, and historical forms of artist’s writing such as modernist concrete poetry. Through sequential residencies hosted throughout the year, Hordaland Kunstsenter hopes to create an ongoing forum for thinking about, reading, and disseminating forms of writing that cross thresholds between art criticism, philosophy, descriptive writing, artist’s statements, fiction, poetry, writing for performance, text art, and any other genres of writing that might be relevant.
