Prof. Joe Dumit and colleagues receive the Bikuben Foundation's 2021 Vision Exhibition Award
Denmark's most prestigious arts award goes to the exhibition and research project "Yet, it moves!" The exhibition is realized in collaboration with the four scientific research partners DARK, the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen; Arts at CERN in Geneva; the Interacting Minds Centre at Aarhus University, and the Program in Performance Studies and ModLab, University of California, Davis.
According to a press release written by the Interacting Minds Centre at Aarhus University in Denmark, the exhibition Yet, it moves! is a visionary research project and public art exhibition that investigates the interconnected movements across scales from the micro to the macro cosmos. The project will unfold through a series of decentralized art installations shown at different locations in Copenhagen from May to September 2023, creating opportunities for people to encounter contemporary art in new ways as the art will live in the city with the people on a daily base.
Yet, it moves! is conceptualized and curated by Irene Campolmi, curator and researcher, Marie Nipper, director of Copenhagen Contemporary, and Jannie Haagemann, head of exhibitions at Copenhagen Contemporary.
The award is accompanied by a generous gift of DKK 5 million, and Copenhagen Contemporary can now begin to work towards the creation of the exhibition format of the future, bringing into play disciplines from the worlds of art and science and unfolding in a direct dialogue with the citizens of Copenhagen, as they move about the city every day. At key locations in the city it will be possible to encounter spectacular contemporary art created by Ryoji Ikeda, Precious Okoyomon, Ralph Lemon, Black Quantum Futurism, Jenna Sutela, Cecilia Bengolea, Jakob Kudsk Steensen, Nora Turato, Helene Nymann, and others to be announced. Through video, performance and art installations the exhibition explores movement as a ubiquitous phenomenon, making us aware of the many and complex patterns of movement that we are all part of.
