Schools in Umeå / Art as it is now, roughly

2006-05-20 to 2006-05-28

Experimental work by 13- and 14-year-olds from primary and lower-secondary schools in Umeå is presented in the exhibition Art as it is now, roughly. On the opening night, Bildmuseet will remain open late with events including a Game Boy concert and a fashion show of clothing designed by six-year-olds. A mobile gallery on wheels will be in the city throughout the night.

It will be a late night at Bildmuseet, with performances, music and costume art. In addition to the works included in the exhibition, a secret art project titled The Need for Gratitude will also be presented. The programme is part of an international night museum concept, and is also part of Culture Night in Umeå.

A sandbox in the desert, a leak in the roof, a famous face in cow dung and a maze are among the works presented in Art as it is now, roughly. The exhibition concludes an unusual project to create new artists for the future. Pupils from different schools met at Bildmuseet during the spring semester to learn about idea-based contemporary art. Ersäng School was paired with Minerva School, and Ålidhem School with Haga School.

The project is a collaboration between Kulturverket, Bildmuseet, the Future Culture Foundation, Umeå University, and four primary and lower-secondary schools.
