Final weekend - 50 Years of Icelandic Art at the Venice Biennale.
Kjarvalsstaðir, 25 April
As groundwork for the exhibition is a newly published research of Iceland’s participation in the Venice Biannale in Italy, which is first of its kind ever made on the subject. Icelandic artists have had their representative at this major international contemporary art exhibition for fifty years but their regular participation did not start until the year 1984. The Venice Biannale takes place once every two years and is claimed to be one of the world’s most important forums for the dissemination about the current developments in international art. In the year 2009 seventy seven nations took part in the Biennale and the number is still growing. Curator is Laufey Helgadóttir.
