Cold Current is an international exhibition project, presenting the works of a group of innovative and interesting professional artists from Norway based in Bergen, in the exhibition spaces of four art institutions in Reggio Emilia in Italy. These artists represent a high level of new, intrepid Norwegian contemporary art, and they work within a variety of different media. We are looking forward to introduce the Italian public to the wide spectrum of artistic expressions that exist within this exciting art scene. The Cold Current project has its basis in a strong wish to show this contemporary art treasure chest to a public that is largely unaware of this Norwegian energy surplus, and at the same time building a bridge between the art environments in these two cultural very active European cities. We are not just bringing the artworks to Italy, we are also bringing the artists themselves, and thereby creating an opportunity for interaction and a meeting place for cultural exchange.
