Welcome to our CARING FUTURES ART EXHIBITION 17. September - 18. December 2022!
In spring 2021, we launched a call for contributions to the CARING FUTURES ART EXHIBITION for artists based in the Nordic region. Our starting point was to ask questions about what is at stake when technological innovations are presented as solutions to new demands in contemporary care and welfare. Are questions about ethics, trust, and compassion left behind in the rapid development and implementation of new technologies?
We received 25 contributions, of which 8 have now been selected to be part of the exhibition.
The CARING FUTURES ART EXHIBITION will take place at Sølvberget Stavanger, Norway 17. September - 18. December 2022. For more information, see our exhibition catalogue.
Accepted artworks include:
Emilia Tikka: AEON & EUDAIMONIA (installations with photography, film and objects)
Ruth Gilmour: Nurturing manoeuvres (textile artwork)
Kathrine Evelid: Tjenersnakk (videowork)
Åsa Båve: Caring with Force (video installation)
Kaisu Koski: HUG: artificial empathy (installation)

Sølvberget Gallery, the exhibition space, is open to the public during fixed hours, with access for wheelchairs, prams and other motion technologies. The exhibition is free of charge.
The exhibition is a part of the research project Caring Futures: developing care ethics for technology-mediated care practices, funded by the Research Council of Norway (RCN). This project revisits care ethics at a time of changing health, care and welfare policies, services and practices.
We also collaborate with HelseCampus Stavanger, the Smart City Research Network at UiS and Stavanger kommune. We are graciously funded by Norsk Kulturråd, Stavanger Municipality and RCN.
