Guest Teacher / Visiting Artist with Lin Cheung at KHIO. Oslo
14-18 September 2015
The HOTWEEK concept is initiated and developed by Heidi Sand; Professor and Head of the Metalwork and Jewellery department of the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in the period 2007 – 2012. It is now run by professor Anders Ljungberg together with students and teachers at Metal- and Jewellery department at Khio. The aim of the project is to involve people from outside of the Academy in the activities of the department.
Every year a new hands on theme is set for HOTWEEK. The theme is, of course, only a starting point for the production of work and can be approached conceptually, aesthetically or in any desired way. We encourage the participants to use any kind of materials and techniques, and to discuss their opinions with our invited teachers. Our guest teachers are selected amongst the very best in the field and are well established artists.
HOTWEEK is held at the grand campus of the Oslo National Art Academy. Well equipped workshops with state-of-the-art machinery and expert technicians provide a structure that supports all kinds of creative activities.
During the workshop we invite all to join in on the artist presentations by HOTWEEK´s guest teachers. There will also be an exhibition during HOTWEEK showing works done during the workshop.
