Art Friday with summer opening, bar and DJ. At 19.00, we will inaugurate the exhibition "Animalesque / Art Across Species and Beings".

Welcome to Art Friday with exhibition opening, bar and DJ! Exhibitions, museum shop and restaurant are open until 21:00.

At 19.00, we will inaugurate the exhibition "Animalesque / Art Across Species and Beings". Museum director Katarina Pierre will give a speech of welcome and the exhibition will be presented by guest curate Filipa Ramos and museum curator Anders Jansson.

The exhibition "Animalesque / Art Across Species and Beings" presents film, painting, sculptural installation, and sound art which reformulate the relationship between humans, nature and non-human creatures.

Among the participating artists are Allora & Calzadilla (US/Cuba), Mary Beth Edelson (US), Luca Frei (Switzerland / Sweden), Pierre Huyghe (France / Chile), Annika Larsson (Sweden), Louise Lawler (US), Britta Marakatt-Labba (Sweden), Amalia Pica (Argentina), and Paloma Varga Weisz (Germany).

"Animalesque / Art Across Species and Beings" has been produced by Bildmuseet and compiled in collaboration with the London-based curator and art critic Filipa Ramos. Filipa Ramos is the editor-in-chief of art-agenda, writes for several international art journals, and teaches at Kingston University, Central Saint Martins in London and at Institut Kunst in Basel.

Bildmuseet is open all day, but the after-work activities starts at 17:00. The restaurant offers a light menu if you want to have a snack. The Art Friday will be open until 21:00, and then it is just a short walk to Umeås night life if you want to continue the evening.
