The symposium brings together an international group of curators, art writers and program directors to discuss and debate the state of contemporary art in the Nordic countries, a press release states.

The symposium will concentrate on the emerging and alternative art scene, with special attention to venues for experimental art and critical discussion.

The program will consist of presentations and panel discussions on specific topics, such as new developments in each country, similarities and differences, common opportunities and separate emphasis, unity and disparate regionalisms.

The symposium is organized by the Reykjavík Art Museum in cooperation with the Living Art Museum, the Centre for Icelandic Art and the Nordic and is presented in conjunction with Ting, The Nordic Arts Festival of the Nordic Council’s 62nd Session.
