Hjørdis Kurås: Lecture at The Sami Center for Contemporary Art
The Sami Center for Contemporary Art is a foundation started in 1986 by The Sami Artists Union, which aims to support Sami contemporary art and crafts and is currently headed by artist and curator Hjørdis Kurås. The centre includes an exhibition space, shop and residency programme and is located in Karasjok.
In addition to a varied exhibition programme, the center frequently collaborates with other arts institutions in the region on festivals such as Barents Spektakel in Kirkenes. Such collaborations frequently reach across borders and involve artists and institutions from neighboring countries such as Sweden, Russia and Finland.
Kurås will hold a lecture for the participants of Living Through the Landscape on Sami contemporary art and the art scene in Karasjok.
