out there

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. 

Created and produced by the Icelandic Art Center, Out There brings host Becky Forsythe in conversation with artists, curators and art professionals. New episode released every two weeks. 

Intro

What does the Icelandic art scene look like today? What can we learn from within the artists’ studio?  By getting out there into the scene, our field, 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 more. It is a new reflection on a specific place and our present moment; a widened view that offers vibrant impressions of the Icelandic art scene, here and now

 

Join me, Becky Forsythe, in a series of ongoing conversations with artists, curators, organizers and art professionals as we think about artist practices and environments, discuss personal histories, themes and experiences, question history, the future, and where we are now. In an attempt to know who and what is Icelandic art today.

 

Out There is created and produced in Reykjavík by the Icelandic Art Centre.
