DESCRIPTION

On Wednesday, December 21st from 8pm-11pm, Visiting Artist Kristian Skylstad will host an exhibition opening in his studio (building 1629, studio #3) for a show he is curating entitled Calma Maria Magdalena. The exhibition is a constellation of artists from different segments of the art world in Norway. What the artists have in common is that they don’t have much in common with other artists. In that sense you could say that each and every one of them represents themselves. A subjective approach to art, which is related to emotions and fragments from biographies. This is a very common method in Norwegian art, music and literature that has roots in the isolation the weather and Norway’s regional placement on the planet forces the mental sphere into. By showing these personal mysteries in the more open minded Los Angeles art scene, NoPlace hopes the friction between the pieces will create an energetic tesseract that will end up as a vague but powerful question: How to talk about the big silence?
