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, multichannel concerts, discursive work and performance.
Lydgalleriet was initiated by a group of musicians, sound artists and art historians in 2005 and founded formally in 2007. Today our staff consists of Artistic and managing director Julie Lillelien Porter, Tim Ekberg (technician), Paal Rasmussen (acoustic and sound technical consultant), Amber Ablett (producer), Samuel Brzeski (dissemination), and William Kudahl, Said Warya and Emilie Wright as gallery assistants.
As the only permanent exhibition platform for sound art in the Nordic countries, Lydgalleriet moved into its own premises in August 2020. Our new address is Strandgaten 195 and is a well-customised venue for sound-based art!
Regular opening hours for exhibitions are Thursday- Sunday 12 –17.
Other projects vary in opening hours. Lydgalleriet is accessed directly from the street. Our toilet facilities are not gender or wheelchair separated.
