The 6th Momentum Biennial
Imagine Being Here Now
18 June – 2 October 2011
Various venues in Moss Norway and around cities of Copenhagen, Helsinki, Reykjavik and Stockholm
The 6th Momentum Biennial was based on questions regarding the active moment in the art experience, when and where it takes place and what role our imagination plays in it. The inherent present of each individual not only extends to momentary impressions but to his or her past as well as their expectations of the future, owing to the fact that we have the ability to imagine being somewhere else entirely, in any other place at any other time. Fifty artists showed their works in various locations in Moss and around the Nordic capitals, that made up the exhibition Imagine Being Here Now.
