TALK: Geir Haraldseth

Sound of the underground. On the relationship between visual art and music.

The talk will be in English
Music has a role to play in the field of contemporary art, but is this role limited to avant-garde and experimental tendencies? Is there room for the popular, the danceable and musical theater? And where is the body in all of this? Geir Haraldseth will do a quick shimmy through the interconnected world of art and music, with a particular focus on popular music.
Haraldseth is the curator at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo, Norway. He was previously the director of Rogaland Kunstsenter in Stavanger, Norway and curator of the National Academy of Art in Oslo, Norway. He has contributed writing to a number of journals including Art in America, The Exhibitionist, Kunstkritikk and Acne Paper.
When? Wednesday 27/3 at 18
