To “picnic” is to converge informally, to enjoy company, conversation, food, and fresh air. As per picnic etiquette, each guest participates by bringing something to the occasion. For this year’s graduate seminar, we pack for an eventful day.
Beginning at Landmark with a full day of activities led by our hostess, Emma Fended from House of Friele. The program includes artist talks by Marco Bruzzone and Marthe Elise Stramrud, and a lecture exploring the picnic through an art historical lens by the formidable Gunnar Danbolt. We invite you to bring your own blanket for a picnic served under the Japanese cherry trees at Lille Lungegårdsvannet. There will be performances, music, a catalogue launch, and a commencement speech by artist David Horvitz. The day concludes with a critic’s circle and cocktails
