Dark Days, White Nights is the InSEA Conference Exhibition, which opens a platform for artistic conference participation and enables and emphasizes the dialogue between academic and artistic practice.
The exhibition title refers to, including but not limited two thematic outlines: The very specific nature conditions in the arctic area, and the culturally changing world.
North of the Arctic Circle, during the summer months sun never sets and during winter it barely rises. This creates living conditions, which define human existence to a great extent. The title can thus be interpreted as a psychological metaphor.
Dark Days, White Nights wants to encourage wider interpretations of the title and invite for critical artistic approaches on the current cultural change caused by the rising of right wing populism in the western world. How do we experience the cultural changes locally and globally? In line with the conference themes the exhibition focuses on contemporary artistic approaches which engage with cultural diversity, post-humanism and eco-justice.
The exhibition is curated by Miia Rinne and Minna Suoniemi. You are warmly welcome to join us in the vernissage of Dark Days, White Nights!
