The 2011 Sequences Real-Time Art Festival, which will be held for the fifth time this year, kicked off yesterday. Until April 10, the festival will present a spectrum of performances, happenings, discussions and lectures in Reykjavík and Seydisfjördur, east Iceland.
The festival’s main objective is to focus on performances and time-based art and to also research the boundaries of the genre, the artistic space, the society and how these elements interact, as described on its website.
Although the festival is usually held in the autumn, in 2009 a decision was made to postpone the next festival until the spring of 2011 instead of having it at its usual time in October due to unbeneficial collision with other events in Reykjavík at the same time.
This year, Sequences will focus solely on the performance in art with cross-disciplinary emphasis on the medium.
The festival will host a number of events in collaboration with art spaces, galleries and art institutions in Reykjavík, involving a number of Icelandic and international artists.
