Contemporary art from Artists from Lapland and Basque Country, curated by Misha del Val.
The exhibition presents the work of six artists living/working in Lapland (Finland) and Basque Country (Spain). The project aims at finding common ground in the culture being produced in Lapland and Basque Country today, through the works of the artists invited in the exhibition. Furthermore, ‘Peripheries (North)’ offers an opportunity to examine, question and reconsider preconceived notions (clichés, stereotypes) about both places; unearth and revitalise real contemporary themes and stories belonging to one and the other; and bring forth a context for a dialogue between artists from the two regions.
Joseba Eskubi, Nadia Barkate and Zuhar Iruretagoiena from Basque country, and artists from Lapland Jaakko Heikkilä, Raisa Raekallio and Sanna Haimila.
