MARSHMALLOWS IN MAY

Flavor of the month: Art festivals

May is a good month when it comes to art.

Work by Hanna Frostell (Konstfack exhibition 2011)

In Stockholm, students from Konstfack, Mejan, Beckmans and Berghs will all be presenting their graduation work — new ideas, trends, perspectives — which is really something looking forward to. One of our “artist talk” artist, Erla Silfá, is releasing her final project, Can’t hear my eyes, at Bio Rio the 21st — which I am personally very excited to hear — and Galleri Fotfolket just opened last friday, as the first mobile art gallery in the city.

From the opening of Galleri Fotfolket 11th of May 2012

In Reykjavík, we’ve already been at the graduation exhibition at LHÍ and in a week from now, one of the oldest and most respected arts festivals in Northern Europe, Reykjavík Art Festivalis opening — bringing together 29 artist-collectives with the collaboration of over 100 participants.

Konsthopp will (of course) be on the spot, reporting ‘the créme de la créme’ from the festival!

Art in Translation is another kind of biennial, a 3-day conference event that aims to create an interdisciplinary forum to explore connections between language and various art forms, this year emphasising on creative writing. At last we should also mention MESSA Vision, a small-scale teaser for MESSA 2013 – an ambitious project that claims to be “the first international visual art fair to be held in Iceland”.

Beside what’s mentioned above, many of the art galleries are opening their last exhibition this month, before summer-closing.

We’ll try our best to keep you updated — so be sure you follow! And please let us know about other art festivals / happenings in your city!

Happy Sunday everyone!
