This fall we focus on performance and offer an international programme that will take place both inside and outside the Jugendstilsenteret and KUBE buildings.
The audience will encounter various temporary performative expressions, and we will present both new productions and older works. Among other projects, we have partnered with Performance Art Bergen (PAB).
Jugendstilsenteret and KUBE is proud to present the exhibition programme for 2017.

Vestlandsutstillingen (the Western Norway Exhibition) has existed since 1922 and is an annual travelling exhibition that presents a cross-section of what is going on in Norwegian contemporary art related to the four western counties. Following an open submission, the 17 participants in this year’s exhibition were selected by a jury comprising members from Vestlandsutstillingen’s board and exhibitors. Ecology and human behaviour are recurring themes in this year’s exhibition.

The exhibition project THE CITY is concerned with cities, urban development and urbanization. In addition to three parallel exhibitions in the museum, a number of events have been carried out, such as lectures and screenings, as well as initiatives and artistic interventions in the city’s outdoor spaces. Taking art, urban planning and architecture as its starting point, the project emphasizes the museum’s role as an actor in society.
