Screen City is a biennal event dedicated to presenting the moving image in public space, and its program combines installations, screenings, art walks, an online exhibition and audio-visual program, talks and panels. It explores the relation between the moving image, sound and architecture and presents artistic formats that seek to expand the borders of cinematic experience. The Biennial is organized in Stavanger, Norway, in close collaboration with local and international art institutions and organizations. The Biennial presents a new platform that works to explore uses of the moving image in contemporary artistic practice. For the 2017 Biennial edition titled Migrating Stories, Stavanger harbor – its architectonic position in the landscape and its surroundings – was an important focus for production and presentations of the art. The Biennial presented moving image artworks from a broad range of international artists in dialogue and conjunction with the urban sphere and context in the city of Stavanger.
