Lydgalleriet is an exhibition platform for sound art and sound related art practices, situated in Bergen, Norway. We explore today's plethora of experimental sound based art practices and auditive cultures through gallery shows, concerts, workshops and interventions in public space. Lydgalleriet was initiated by a group of musicians, sound artists and art historians in 2005 and founded formally in 2007. Lydgalleriet is managed by it’s artistic director and board, and funded by Arts Council Norway and Bergen city council.
Since November 2005, Lydgalleriet has made projects in different locations in Bergen. In 2012 Lydgalleriet, together with EKKO festivalen opened the venue Østre: house for sound art and experimental music, where the majority of Lydgalleriet's exhibitions and projects take place. Lydgalleriet collaborates with local, national and international institutions such as Borealisfestivalen, BEK and other PNEK-nodes. Between 2012 and -14, Lydgalleriet was part of Resonance - network for European sound art.
Lydgalleriet is situated in Østre Skostredet 3, 5017 Bergen. Our regular office hours are Monday- Friday 09:00-15:00. Exhibitions, concerts and other projects vary in opening hours.
