Sequences – real time art festival
Sequences Art Festival will be held for the sixth time in Reykjavik April 5-14 2013. Dedicated to time-based art––especially video, sound and performances––the event has been a grassroots initiative and established itself in the city’s art scene.
Sequences will take place in 64 days from today. You can follow the countdown on the newly published and refreshing web.
Sequences VI introduces events and exhibitions that will express the humdrum and drama of everyday life. In the last few years an academic approach has engrossed the Reykjavik art scene with numerous projects associated with philosophy, science and research. Sequences VI resists the surge of logic and reason into art by reflecting the constant uncertainties of the everyday. A sense for the personal will be brought to light in the choice of venues for the festival, setting it in intimate spaces, in homes, artist studios, hotel rooms and in residential areas. Triumphs and setbacks in the emotional life, the longing for beauty, boredom and epiphany, the fear of time slipping away and the search for art in our day-to-day routine––these are all qualities that will characterize the upcoming art festival.
