Group exhibition works by North Icelandic artists
Galleries 10 11
Every other year since 2015 a group exhibition with works from North Icelandic artists has been set up at the Akureyri Art Museum. This is therefore the fourth biennale, which now has a special theme: Restrictions. Obviously this is a title which directly refers to the state of the world these days.
Participants apply to a call from Akureyri Art Museum and a special jury selects the works that will be exhibited. A catalogue will be published and guided tours offered regularly with the participating artists. The exhibition is meant to give an insight into the diverse flora of visual arts tied to North Iceland and bring attention and inspire dissuccion on the status of artists and visual arts in North Iceland. Hence the biennale can become a basis for research and creativity within the field of visual arts as well as a motivation and opportunity.
Curator: Hlynur Hallsson.
