Episode 1: Markús Þór Andrésson

What does the Icelandic art scene look like today? What can we learn from within the artists’ studio? By getting out into the scene, the studio, the storage, the artist-led space, gallery and museum, and by looking around us? Icelandic Art Center’s podcast Out There brings these things into focus and is a portal reflective of place and our present moment; a widened view that offers impressions of the Icelandic art scene, here and now

In the first episode Becky Forsythe sits down with Markús Þór Andrésson, Chief Curator of Exhibitions and Public Engagement at Reykjavík Art Museum. Their conversation begins with Markús’ own personal experience with art, art history, meaningful past art moments, the present, and leaves us with some thoughts about a potential future art scene in Iceland.

Created and produced by the Icelandic Art Center, Out There brings host Becky Forsythe in conversation with artists, curators and art professionals.

The podcast is now available on Spotify and soon on most podcast directories including Apple Podcasts, TuneIn and Google podcasts.
