Memories from tomorrow
12 March–24 April
For the second year in a row, the Reykjanes Art Museum invites Master students in Curatorial Practice at the Iceland University of the Arts to curate an exhibition in both its exhibition halls. Memories from tomorrow opens on Saturday, 12th of March 2022 and is open until the 24th of April 2022.
Memories from tomorrow is curated by Iona Poldervaart, Sara Blöndal and Sunna Dagsdóttir. The participating artists are Elnaz Mansouri, Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir, Sarah Degenhardt, Sarah Finkle, Victoria Björk, and Vikram Pradhan.
The exhibition Memories from tomorrow is a group exhibition that focuses on the future: our relationship with our surroundings, our stories, our dreams.
Memories are stories from the past and every day we are writing the stories we will have as memories in the future. Advances in technology significantly impact various aspects of our lives. The curators want to develop a vision of what life may look like in the near future, and ponder the possibilities of that new world. Doing so sparks fundamental questions about the nature of affluence and of being human, and what constitutes life. Do we have control of our future? Of our dreams? Of our present time? How do we write our narratives and deal with our environment? How do we experience space and can we share a dream space? How will we live tomorrow and what will we look back on in the future?
Curatorial practice is a new MA study progamme in the Department of Fine Art at the Iceland University of the Arts. It was founded in autumn of 2020 and is led by Professor Hanna Styrmisdóttir.
