Curator Markus Þór Andrésson will give a lecture in Herubreid Community Centre, as a part of the international collaboration project Frontiers of Solitude. Markus will present Icelandic artists and exhibitions dating from 1971 with a focus on visual art and ecology, environmental protection and sustainability.
Frontiers of Solitude is an international collaboration between artists and arts organizations in three European countries: Skolska28 (Czech Republic), Atelier Nord (Norway) and Skaftfell. The project focuses on current transformations of the landscape and the close connections between our post-industrial civilization and nature. The aim is to foster collaboration and an exchange of experiences between individual artists, researchers and initiatives, and to explore and interpret recent and long-term transformations of the landscape.
The project is a joint initiative of the Skolska 28 Gallery (Deai/setkani), the Atelier Nord, and Skaftfell – Center for Visual Art, and is supported by grant from Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway through the EEA grants for Cultural Heritage and Contemporary Arts.
