---------------------------------------------------------------------

Save the date for the book launch of Sovereign Words, 5 December, Tromsø: A first of its kind reader of Indigenous voices, Sovereign Words charts perspectives across art and film, ethics and history, theory and the museological field.

The event is organised by the Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA), with the collaboration of the Northern Norwegian Art Museum (NNKM).

Contributors: Daniel Browning, Kabita Chakma, Megan Cope, Santosh Kumar Das, Hannah Donnelly, Léuli Māzyār Luna’i Eshrāghi, David Garneau, Biung Ismahasan, Kimberley Moulton, Máret Ánne Sara, Venkat Raman Singh Shyam, Irene Snarby, Ánde Somby, Megan Tamati-Quennell, Prashanta Tripura, Sontosh Bikash Tripura.

OCA RESIDENCIES

---------------------------------------------------------------------

OCA provides International Residencies for Norwegian artists, curators and critics abroad. Current residency participants:

Benedikte Holen, curatorial residency at ISCP, NYC 1 September–30 November 2018
During her residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York City (ISCP, NYC) Holen is developing an upcoming exhibition for Jugendstilsenteret and KUBE revolving around the ocean as an arena for ecological, political and social global issues, as well as conducting research on different artistic and curatorial practices for future collaborative projects.

Helene Førde, artist residency at ISCP, NYCP 1 September 2018–31 August 2019
During her time at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York City (ISCP, NYC), Førde will continue to explore her interest in perception, awareness, memories, context, and the particular history and character of a space. Her recent works also reflect on cultural history, traditions and patterns of living, in the face of new times, change and prevailing politics. The first part of the stay will be dedicated to getting to know the area surrounding ISCP, and to investigate sites, situations and important/disputed topics in the city.

Sarah Shipschack, curatorial residency at Mumbai Art Room, India 15 November–15 December 2018
During her residency at the Mumbai Art Room, Sarah Shipschack spends her time developing her knowledge of artists in India at large who work with moving images, and Shipschack will add screenings to the exhibition to anchor the project in a local context. On 6 December Mumbai Art Room will open Tanya Busse's solo exhibition 'The Poets Antidote', curated by Schipschack, which brings a northern perspective to the context of the south, and addresses themes of history, war, and the clash between capitalistic and indigenous world views.

Ina Hagen, artist residency at Capacete, Brazil 1 September–30 November 2018
During her time at Capacete, artist and writer Ina Hagen sets out to learn about the residency’s long history and how it has maintained connections to its local and extended community over the years. Central to her inquiries is intimacy: how it is enacted across relations that have been forged in times of difficulty; how intimacy gives and takes, and how it eventually weaves or unravels a feeling of solidarity with others. With Capacete as a frame of reference, Hagen is curious to discuss how such solidarity is maintained, and whether intimacy still remains as a meaningful force in the current face of increasingly polarised public life.
