We are monitoring the situation and will follow advice from the Institute of Public Health on a continuous basis.

Artist and writer Samuel Brzeski has been invited by Lydgalleriet to be Writer in residence throughout 2020. The residency seeks to develop a series of creatively driven texts in relation to our exhibitions throughout 2020, formulated in response to the exhibiting artist's research/ along with a dialogue with the artist /working from the exhibition itself. With this project, Lydgalleriet wishes to investigate new ways in which we can write about sound, listening, and everything that surrounds it.
Lydgalleriet has since 2007 contextualised many projects and exhibitions through text, image and publications. Here is a selection of this material.
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 performativity.
Lydgalleriet was initiated by a group of musicians, sound artists and art historians in 2005 and founded formally in 2007. Today our permanent staff consists of Director Julie Lillelien Porter, Tim Ekberg (technician), Amber Ablett (producer), 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. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with local, national and international artists in 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.
