Playfully overlapping the fields of exhibition design, performance and sculptural practice Anders and Marianne have created a flexible screening room within the gallery. Over four weeks in July they will showcase a selection of Norwegian films spanning the post war/pre-petrol era from 1948-1981.  These seldom seen Norwegian films are paired each night with a selection of contemporary Norwegian video art.

Please join us on Friday, July 6 for an opening reception and introduction to the series by Anders and Marianne followed by Variations of Max by Helene Sommer (2010) and Motforestilling by Erik Løchen (1972).  Doors at 6pm screening at 7.30pm. Space for Art and Industry is air-conditioned and refreshments are served.
