During the course of the three-year Art Line project, participating partners will gather a range of materials and “stories” from individuals who live within and who travel throughout the South Baltic region. The collected materials span many forms and types and will include traditional interviews, photo essays, digital stories, historical and archival media, as well as accidental encounters, ambient sounds, and abstract images, all gathered from sea-travelers, sea-dwellers, and from the sea itself. The stories we collect will form the raw materials and inspiration for artists from our partner countries who will turn the stories into art works that will be touring museums and galleries around the Baltic throughout 2012-2013.
The first of a total of 5 Telling the Baltic exhibitions will be held at Karlskrona County Museum in Sweden, starting on the 9th of June, 2012.
Between 19 October – 2 December Telling the Baltic will be exhibited at CCA Laznia in Gdansk. From 14 December, 2012 to 15 January, 2013 it will be at Kaliningrad NCCA. From 7 February to 17 March, 2013 it will be at Kunsthalle Rostock and during summer 2013 at Stena Vision.
