The Chinese European Art center is delighted to present the event Rolling Snowball/5 in partnership with the Municipality of Djúpiavogur. The purpose of this exhibition and the summer artist-in-residency program it is connected with, is to promote dialogue and cultural exchange between Chinese and Western cultures, as well as to bring an art-loving public to Djúpivogur. CEAC´s network is constantly expanding. Hundreds of artists from all over the world have worked at CEAC. This stimulates action and communication between people from a local to an international level. Rolling Snowball/5 is CEAC’s first large scale event outside of China.
Collaboration is at the heart of this work. The huge show of solidarity and support received from the artists and the inhabitants of Djúpivogur has been of extraordinary importance to our success. Djúpivogur proved to be a perfect host for this event.
The 2014 summer residency with Dutch artists Marjan Laaper and Scarlett Hooft Graafland and the Rolling Snowball exhibition with thirty-five artists
from China and Europe, like merchants of the old times, bring fresh and exotic atmosphere that is welcoming and hopefully enjoyed by most people.
