Opening 9 June, 17:00 at The Nordic House.
Outdoors sculptures by a group of eight different artists will appear in several Reykjavík neighbourhoods during the festival. The Wheel is a series of outdoors exhibitions held around the city since 2018 by the Reykjavík Association of Sculptors to honour the 50th anniversary of the association. The first exhibition was part of the Reykjavík Arts Festival in 2018 and now the circle will close with the fifth and final installment. This time, The Wheel will weave its way through areas 101, 102 and 107, as artists shed new light on our everyday surroundings. The works displayed are of a varied nature, provoking a deep study of both area and history while simultaneously examining the more complex social stratification of the cityscape.
The Wheel V is a fascinating opportunity to experience the familiar in new ways, to get to know the works of a truly diverse group of artists and ponder the time and space of the city, in your own time.
