Ragnar Kjartansson in ICA Boston
Dec. 12, 2012 – April 7, 2013
Opening December 12
Ragnar Kjartansson: Song is Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States. A musician as well as an artist, Kjartansson has been drawn to theater and performance since he first formed a band as a teenager. In a constantly evolving body of work, Kjartansson plays with notions of myth, cultural history, and identity, often through the lens of music and performance, all the while playing sincerity against the inherent artifice of performance. The exhibition includes a selection of video works from the last decade as well as a live performance. Coordinated for the ICA by Curatorial Assistant Anna Stothart, Ragnar Kjartansson: Song is organized by the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh
