Artist Research Week
January 25 - 28
One of the most important tasks we have this year is to find ways to own and to express agency through the challenges that have surfaced as new variables in our practices, our every day, and how we relate to the world. “Hospitality Vulnerability Vitality” sets the framework for “openness” in the face of challenges, in the reception of causal effects from the unexpected, and in allowing for multiple perspectives. It speaks to visions and processes that are inherent to artistic practice, and the positive impact and invigoration that can be achieved when adopted as a strategy for forging new artistic ground.
Artistic research is an integrated part of the activities at Oslo National Academy of the Arts and plays a central role in forging a unified artistic community. The Artistic Research Week aims to contribute to a wider understanding of the nature of artistic research, to showcase what is being developed, and how this research relates to the greater disciplinary and socio-cultural contexts. It also aims to increase the discursive level on artistic research, through sharing experiences, insights and knowledge that is generated through practice-based research with faculties, students and a wider audience.
