In The Year of The Quiet Sun

Bergen Kunsthall opened the spring season with In the Year of the Quiet Sun, the first major exhibition by The Otolith Group in the Nordic region

Curated by Martin Clark and Steinar Sekkingstad

The Otolith Group's first exhibition in Norway, In the Year of the Quiet Sun configures moments from the grand project of mid-20th Century Pan-Africanism, envisaged as the total liberation of the African continent from Europe's Empires, through the media of animation, video, interior decor, display-system, reading room and publication.

Statecraft (2014), Sovereign Sisters (2014) and One Out of Many Afrophilias (2014) were co-commissioned and co-developed in collaboration with Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen and Casco-Office for Art, Design and Theory in partnership with Artsonje Center.

In the Year of the Quiet Sun (2013) was co-commissioned with Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin and Casco-Office for Art, Design and Theory in partnership with Artsonje Center.

In the Year of the Quiet Sun will be presented at Casco-Office for Art, Design and Theory in late Autumn 2014.
