“Grassroots IX” Opens at the Living Art Museum

An exhibition series entitled “Grassroots”, held almost every year for the past decade, opened at the Living Art Museum on Skúlagata 28 in Reykjavík, yesterday.

“Grassroots IX” features the work of eight artists, all from different artistic backgrounds: Bryndís Björnsdóttir, Helga Björg Gylfadóttir, Irene Ósk Bermudez, Klaengur Gunnarsson, Kolbrún Ýr Einarsdóttir, Kristín Rúnarsdóttir, Sigrídur Tulinius and Sigurdur Atli Sigurdsson.

They have all been active in writing and publishing art-related material and have been involved in various cross-disciplinary artistic undertakings.

Their approach varies from taking a political stand to a more contemplated formalistic method or a playful poetic point of view, a press release describes.

The “Grassroots” exhibitions are aimed specifically at giving emerging artists an opportunity to exhibit and to be actively involved in a professional setting, as well as provide an insight into the direction contemporary Icelandic art is developing.

The exhibition runs through October 30. The curator is Kristjana Rós Gudjohnsen.
