Performance art will be in focus at Reykjavik Art Museum – Hafnarhús this November with Performance Nebula a performance festival that takes place November 18th–21st 2021. Performance art has a long and remarkable history and has the art form flourishing in past years. The program reflects this by offering performances by mixing generations of younger artists, who have been experimenting with the form, as well as other more experienced artists that have developed their own style, methods and subjects. Artists and/or artists groups that took up performance art in their practices and influenced its development in the Icelandic art scene will participate in lunch talks.
Performance Fog is a one-day symposium on the theme of performance art and the institutional role with regards to the medium will run alongside of the festival program. Speakers include artists, scholars and museum professionals specializing in preservation and archives. The symposium is held in collaboration with The Research Center in Museum Studies (RCMS), University of Iceland.
Artists that participate in Performance Nebula include: The Icelandic Love Corporation, Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir, Margrét Bjarnadóttir, Sigurður Ámundason, Örn Alexander Ámundason, Egill Sæbjörnsson and Ilmur Stefánsdóttir.
