Reykjavík Arts Festival to Host “Experiment Marathon”

The highlight of the 2008 Reykjavík Arts Festival, May 15 to August 17, will be a special “Experiment Marathon” organized by the Reykjavík Art Museum and the Serpentine Gallery in London.

Curator Hans Ulrich Obrist from the Serpentine Gallery will cooperate with Icelandic artist Ólafur Elíasson on leading the project. It is based on experiments and includes an exhibition and a series of original events related to the exhibition.

The Reykjavík Art Museum – Hafnarhús will be turned into a makeshift laboratory where local and foreign artists, architects, filmmakers and scientists will create a special venue for their discoveries, installations, performances and films.
