RGB Neighbors-Leeuwarden Netherlands 2010

RGB Neighbors is a one-day festival of artists film and video, taking place in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, on Saturday 27th. March.

The festival focusses on two countries, Norway and Sweden. Curators for the two programmes are Jeremy Welsh (Norway) and Gunnel Pettersson (Sweden). Each country presents a selection of recent artists’ work, plus a special presentation of young artists / students from the two countries. In addition there will be music/video performances featuring collaboration between Dutch and Norwegian/Swedish artists.

In the publicity, they advertise it as “Norway vs. Sweden”! Who will win? Will the Swedes in the Norwegian team change sides in the middle of the match? A full report, with edited highlights and action replays will be posted after the end of the event :-)

The selection reflects various directions in recent video art from from Norway, ranging from purely visual experimentation with the possibilities of the electronic image, to cinematic narratives made in the manner of low-budget film.Visual inventiveness, imaginative playfulness, an ability to observe and communicate human strengths and weaknesses, a facility for visual poetry – all of these aspects are reflected in the programme.
