On Common Ground

Exhibition at Korpúlfsstaðir, 5th – 26th September. Opening Saturday, September 5th at 4 pm. On Common Ground was conceived as an invitational exhibition to bring together Icelandic artists and artists from Lithuania and Poland who are presently living and working in Iceland. As immigration to Iceland has increased over the past decades (mostly from Lithuania and Poland, but from other countries as well), so have immigrants contributed to the vibrant cultural life of the country. The purpose of this exhibition is to acknowledge the growing diversity of our community and create a common ground on which to exchange ideas and promote mutual understanding.

Opening speech by Vigdís Jakobsdóttir, director of Reykjavík Art Festival and Pari Stave will have a Live stream speech. Gudrita Lape performs a performance: 2 Common Rd. (15 min.)
