7th of March marked the opening of this years Borealis festival for experimental music, with concerts by USA's Ensemble Pamplemousse, as well as Norwegian string quartet, Rosella, and Asamisimasa ensemble presented at the UiB Faculty for Art, Music and Design.
Various intensive festival preparations have been taking place at Wrap, including work with Bryan Jacob's mechanical sound sculptures, and costumes for interventions exploring radical hospitality by artists from the Icelandic S.L.Á.T.U.R. collective.
Wrap is a centre for artistic production and communication, which provides a wide range of facilities to professional artists, on a project-to-project basis. Wrap is artist-run, but none of our facilities are exclusively reserved for any particular artist. Our tools and spaces are maintained and organised by knowledgeable professionals and our prices are subsidised in order to reflect the means of most artists, and to maintain an inclusive profile.
We also initiate and curate various artistic projects that we believe benefit the artistic communities surrounding the centre.
