PAB OPEN 2017 - Vaskerelven
Performance Art Bergen (PAB) has the pleasure of inviting the public to an extraordinary art experience at Vaskerelven 8 - the former location of Bergen Academy of Art and Design.

On Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of October, we will fill the whole building – three floors - with more than 70 performance artists from all around the world.

This is the third edition of PAB Open, and the response has been overwhelming. Every year of the festival, PAB Open represents a broad and inclusive spectrum of all types of performance art, both national and international: something surprising and pleasing for everyone. This year will be no exception

The festival’s ethos is not to curate the selection of artists or work: all applications are accepted! We thereby promise an exciting and varied program from beginning to end.

The event is free. Guests are invited to visit the festival café for homemade food and drink, conversations about life and art. There will also be an exhibition about PAB's public space interventions ‘Open Space’ in the hallway to the café.



Program:

Friday 6th October - 12.30-16.45 - Bergen Kunsthall - Upstairs
Seminar - "REALITY IN ART - Do We Want to Differentiate?”

Friday 6. Oktober - 17.30-18.30 - Festplassen
