Opening 20th of November, 2020
Starting from Oulu, crossing the border to visit Piteå and Luleå in Sweden and then returning to Oulu, the Art Vehicles bus tour 2020 is an interactive and experiential journey and a community art event that brings artists in contact with various audiences.
The artists and audiences will ride on the bus, enjoying artworks in the bus and viewing site-specific works at the stopping points. The project aims to present a rich palette of highly interesting art in an accessible way.
The destination of the Art Vehicles tour is the opening of both the Piteå Performing Arts Biennial and the Luleå Art Biennial. The Luleå Art Biennial was organised for the first time in 1991, making it the oldest art biennial in Scandinavia. It is organised by Konstfrämjandet, a national organisation founded in 1947. The Piteå Performing Arts Biennial will be held for the first time in autumn 2020. It is organised by Piteå School of music, Studio Acusticum, Norrbottensmusiken and Dans i Nord, in collaboration with Kluster, Pitebygdens musikförbund, Piteå Konsthall and Regionbiblioteket.
