Hanne Grieg Hermansen and Aja Ulset openings 15 April

Former KHIB master student Hanne Grieg Hermansen (graduated 2010) opened her first solo show at Tag Team Studio on Friday April 15th, showing a series of large drawings. The same evening, another class of 2010 graduate, Anja Ulset, opened a solo show at Knipsu, where the exhibits include postcards and specially produced stamps that the visitor can use to send a message from the exhibition.  The postcard is from the ongoing project "Bergen Art Guide" in which accidentally discovered sites in Bergen are appropriated and then attributed to well-known artists as examples of their work. The postcard shows a "work" by Gordon Matta Clark. Meanwhile, this year's MA exhibition continues at Bergen Kunsthall until May 1st.
