Coast to Coast

Lunch lecture on the project and exhibition Coast to Coast

Tuesday, 24 September 12:15–12:45 pm
Gothenburg City Library
In Swedish

Artists Peter Eccher and Mor Faye ”Murf” talk about their collaboration for Coast to Coast, a project and an exhibition on view at the Gothenburg Public Library, part of GIBCA Extended. Coast to Coast is a collaboration among artists from Gothenburg and Dakar who meet at and participate in the Dak’Art Biennial and GIBCA Extended. Started in Dakar in 2018, the collaboration continued in the summer of 2019, when four Senegalese artists have been in residence at Konstepidemin Art Centre in Gothenburg, and together with artists from West Sweden, have been working with the biennial’s theme as a point of departure in their practice. This collaboration has resulted in the exhibition Coast to Coast, on view at the Public Library. Tedsdotter talks about what it means to create a transcontinental artistic dialogue and opens up for a discussion about local and global topics of mutual concern, such as climate change, norms, and equality.

Programme in collaboration with Göteborgs Konsthall.
