MA Degree Show in Fine Art 2013
"The Master's Exhibition 2013" takes place at Bergen Kunsthall from 12 April - 5 May.
For those of us who keep up with these things - whether it is of interest, obligation or both - it has gradually sunk in that it is never quite the same. It would be equally true and equally correct to argue the opposite: that it is always the same.
When we this year are on the threshold of an MA Degree Show in
Fine Art that has been given the ingenious title "The Master's
Exhibition 2013" (where do we take it from?), it is precisely this
double truth that's being activated in the back of our minds. We
need to take a closer look at everything, what is it these people
are really mastering? And the answer, even though no one really
knows at the time of this writing, is of course a
little bit of each. As usual.
But there will also be established some previously unknown perspectives, and things we've never seen before. This will also be quite common in this context, because this will always be an exceptional event, where you will see hints of the future as we would perceive it in this hypothetical construction we relate to as "contemporary art", and by extension how the rest of the world is connected. If it stays connected. If it ever really was connected. Or, if it is possible for anything or anyone at all to break loose from all connections.
Remember, this is primarily a form of communication. The beginning and end of a conversation. And if we do not engage in dialogue with art we will end up with a monologue, and strictly speaking we have no time for that. So once again, we say that we are lucky. So are you.
