Event description

Description

FRESH EYES - International Artists Rethink Aarhus is an art project focused on photography, literature, and urban space. Since 2013, internationally renowned artists from Europe, Asia, and Africa have visited Aarhus to draw inspiration from the city, which has lead to a wide range of photographic and literary interpretations of life in the city.

From October 12th - October 29th 2017 contributions from all these artists will be on display in a creative and innovative exhibition in the urban spaces in the heart of Aarhus. The exhibition is part of the official Aarhus 2017 - European Capital of Culture programme.

In connection with the exhibition, Galleri Image and the Aarhus Centre for Literature will publish a spectacular art book to be launched on October 12th, 2017. In this book the many photographic works and pieces of literature will be presented side by side in order to complement each other in an innovative, artistic representation of Aarhus. During the exhibition period, Galleri Image will also function as an information hub for the project and urban installation as well as the starting point for guided walks.

FRESH EYES - International Artists Rethink Aarhus is a collaboration between Galleri Image and the Aarhus Centre for Literature. The project will result in an art book, an exhibition at Galleri Image, and photo, audio, and video installations in the urban spaces of Aarhus as well as readings, workshops, and seminars at Godsbanen. The FRESH EYES exhibition will take place from October 12th to 29th, and is curated by Gitte Broeng, author and curator.
