Sumar/Summer -- Selected works by North Icelandic artists
Akureyri Art Museum, Ketilhús
June 10 - August 27 2017
For the second time Akureyri Art Museum holds an extensive exhibition of works by artists from North Iceland. For the first exhibition, Autumn, the Museum received close to 100 applications and works by 30 artists were selected. As previously artists apply to participate, send in their work as well as information, before March 1st 2017. A jury of five people will review the applications and select works for the exhibition.
The exhibition is meant to reflect the diverse range of art being created in North Iceland and to spark discussions on the status of artists and art in North Iceland. A catalogue will be published and guided tours will be offered regularly with participating artists.
Curator: Hlynur Hallsson.
