Playfully overlapping the fields of exhibition design, performance and sculptural practice artist Anders Smebye and curator Marianne Zamecznik have created a flexible screening room within the gallery space. Over four weeks in July they will showcase a selection of Norwegian films spanning the post war/pre-petrol era from 1948-1981. These seldom seen Norwegian films are paired each night with a selection of contemporary Norwegian video art.
The Running Room, an installation and film program by artist Anders Smebye and curator Marianne Zamecznik. The exhibition will open on Friday, July 6 at 6pm with a film screening at 7.30pm. Space for Art and Industry is located at Building 92 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The public entrance is on Flushing Ave. at Carlton Ave
