WHAT IS THE WINTER SOLSTICE? IN LONG
══════════════════════════
The Winter Solstice is an art project and happening; a night exhibition and cross-disciplinary event materializing in Oslo during the longest night of the year.

The event aims to gather the local audience around various practices of both emerging and established artists, offering a unique opportunity to experience art works through the night combined with performances, concerts, poetry readings, plays and even yoga sessions. The food and entrance are free.
The Winter Solstice 2016 has gathered over 130 artists and performers, attracting over 300 people.
The event functions clearly as a space of pro-ject: as throwing something towards the future.

This event is inspired by the Annual Avant Garde Festival of New York, initiated in 1963 by the cel- list and performance artist Charlotte Moorman, as well as pre-christian pagan traditions such as Yule and Modranicht, the very origin of christmas.
