It's so good to be back. This is our fifth (maybe sixth, who's counting?) year at Nuart, and not only is this the festival's 15th year, but they have an outstanding line-up creating art around Stavanger, Norway with the topic of play and intervention at its heart. We just got into town, and the artists are all hard at work, so before the talks, the drinks, and the unveiling of all the tunnel installations, here is a look at some of the works in progress. 

Check out this year's line-up here, which includes Futura, Martha Cooper, Martin Whatson, Bordalo II, Dotdotdot, Dolk, Ernest Zacharevic, Bortusk Leer, Harmen de Hoop, Icy & Sot, Ella & Pitr, Isaac Cordal, Jamie Reid (Sex Pistols! yes!), Pejac, Pixelpancho, and Sandra Chevrier.
