Dear Listener,

For the second time, Archipelago brings together an exhibition in the form of a mixtape. Over-writing the recordings of last year, the new exhibition airs from the 28th of July 2017.

The tracks on the mixtape of this summer are newly commissioned works by six international artists and writers: Øystein Wyller Odden (Norway), Jay Tan (New Zealand / The Netherlands), Josh Minkus (USA), Icaro Zorbar (Colombia / Norway), Miriam Myrstad (Norway) and Mercedes Azpilicueta (Argentina / The Netherlands). The diverse nature of their works and interests; a language between sculpture and writing, performance and music, brings together a mixtape with extracts of research, poetry, field recording, narratives and carefully constructed soundtracks.

The mixtape can be directly played from this website or you can download it to your phone or laptop to listen to it where ever you may find yourself this summer.

Archipelago is a small, flexible exhibition platform at Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen. The mixtape is curated by Mathijs van Geest, and is supported by Bergen Kommune and Norsk Kulturråd.
