Icelandic Artists Featured in Manifesta 7

Four Icelandic artists have their work on display in the current Manifesta 7 exhibition which opened in Trentino Alto Adige, the northernmost region of Italy, earlier this week. The exhibition will be open to the public after 10 am today.

“Uterus Flags” by Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson.

The exhibition comprises several locations across the region, including unused industrial buildings and the Icelanders—Margrét H. Blöndal, Ragnar Kjartansson and the team of Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson—will be showcasing in the town of Rovereto, in an old, disused tobacco factory as part of the exhibition “Principle Hope” curated by Adam Budak.

The first Manifesta was set up in Rotterdam in 1996 and since then this roving biennale has provided a venue for cutting-edge art and discussions on the role of art in European society and culture.

Moving from one European city or region to another, Manifesta has become known for introducing young artists and is a forum for exploring new ways to think about the art scene and its infrastructure in Europe.
