Lydgalleriet is an exhibition platform for sound art and sound related art practices, situated in Bergen, Norway. We explore a diversity of experimental sound-based art practices and sonic cultures through gallery shows, multichannel concerts, discursive work and live programming.
Lydgalleriet work with artists showing a critical engagement in contemporary cultural issues through various sonic mediums with spatial qualities. Since 2005, Lydgalleriet has played a central role in developing discourse about our own artistic field; sound art, – and have conveyed the historical context of Norwegian and international sound art, positioned between sound installation, performance and experimental music and its peculiarity within contemporary art.
Initiated by a group of musicians, sound artists and art historians in 2005 and founded formally in 2007, Lydgalleriet is the only permanent exhibition platform for sound art in the Nordic countries.
