NOORDERLICHT: AVAILABLE TOURING EXHIBITIONS
This is a special newletter to our colleague organisers.
Noorderlicht exhibitions stand out for their thematic organization and combination of visual imagination and social engagement. Some of our presentations are available to be shown by other institutions abroad. If you are interested in taking over any of these exhibitions from us, we would be pleased to hear from you:
The following Noorderlicht-productions are currently available as travelling exhibitions. Each of these shows is accompanied by a catalogue.
In consultation with Noorderlicht the size and composition of the presentations can be altered, on the condition that the travelling exhibition continues to do justice to its original points of departure.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you are interested in Traces & Omens, please let us know as soon as possible, within the next two weeks. We are currently looking into the comprehensiveness of this tour, and we need to decide on the volume of the works to prepare for touring on short notice.
Traces & Omens
The central exhibition of the Noorderlicht 2005 Photofestival, devoted to the visualization of time. With contributions by 42 photographers from 18 countries, who set time in motion again with their still images and seek to liberate photography from the tyranny of the moment.
A spinoff of the Traces & Omens exhibition featuring work by 6 photographers offering a piercing image of the aftermath of the Tsunami.
The Noorderlicht photography commissions 2001-2004, carried out by Antoine d’Agata (France), Adrienne van Eekelen (Netherlands), Ken Schles (USA), Anders Petersen (Sweden) and John Davies (Great Britain). In September 2005 the presentation was the opening exhibition in the new Noorderlicht Photo Gallery.
Nazar: photography from the Arab world
The much lauded main exhibition from the Noorderlicht 2004 Photo Festival, devoted to the Arab world, seen through Arab, Western and historic eyes. Selections from the show have already been seen in Aleppo (Syria), Prague, Houston, New York and other cities. The catalogue has been republished by Aperture.
Terri Weifenbach (USA), Andreas Gefeller (Germany), Machiel Botman (Netherlands) and Marco Wiegers (Netherlands) recorded the last traces of vanished castles, churches and other centuries-old cultural/historic sites north of the city of Groningen. An exhibition about the timelessness of the past.

Noorderlicht strives for cooperation, and is also interested in projects from potential partners. If you have assembled exhibitions which you think might be suitable for Noorderlicht, for instance in the form of an exhibition exchange, we would appreciate hearing from you.
