Contemporary public art practice has become an audienceless affair with
application-based works directed purely at those that fund them. While
artists and funding bodies are locked in dialogues of mutual gratification
the public are the ultimate losers. The creation of alternative platforms
for interaction and discussion must subvert these well established pathways
and deliver their content to a wider general public.
This year's festival uses a range of alternative media outside of
conventional art practice to deliver content in ways that are easily
accessible and relevant to our audiences, both actual and virtual.
Live events will merge in this cross media remix. Using the town and the
numusic festival as its palette, this year's nuart festival feeds its
street, visual and nu media events into a multi-layered broadcast. Internet
radio will merge nuartist presentations and workshops with numusic concerts
interviews. nuTV streams live acts from the numusic stages online and to
your mobile phone, while text messages from the public create narratives in
nuart VJ sets.
Calls for walls in Stavanger has born fruit with 9 locations in and around
town being painted by some of the worlds great street artists. Open to the
public, these street works will be filmed, cut and fed back onto the
numusic stages as visual backdrop for numusic acts.
Using alternative media broadcasting techniques, subversive content is made
available to those usually sidelined by a lexicon of fine art nonsense.
