Coming up for TALK Series …

Under the title TALK Lecture & Visitor Series, Reykjavík Art Museum, Icelandic Art Center and the Icelandic Academy of the Arts are initiating a collaborative visitor program, offering a platform for continual professional-, international encounter to take place in Iceland. Comprising visits by ground-breaking figures in the visual arts, this program initiative will bring to Icelandic art community, as well as to the public at large, the burgeoning ideas and diverse practices that define the terms and shape the dialogue within the international contemporary art scene. Events will take place in English and are open to everyone, free of charge.
