About Hordaland Art Centre
HORDALAND ART CENTRE based in Bergen, Norway was established 1976 as the first artist run art centre in Norway. Its activities are based around the exhibition programme with equal emphasis on seminars, presentations and dialogue. Since 1987 HORDALAND ART CENTRE has hosted a Nordic residency programme, from 2008 also open to international artists, curators, writers and other art professionals.
HORDALAND ART CENTRE also works with public art commissions (in collaboration with Public Art Norway), a regional and international Outside programme (in collaboration with other institutions) and has since 2007 collaborated with the MA-programme at the Bergen National Academy of the Arts and has an ongoing collaboration with the 5th grade pupils at the neighbouring Nordnes Primary School.
