LAND Book Art exhibition

LAND is an exhibition of Book Art by eleven artists. The exhibition is curated by the art group ARKIR, which has been active since 1998, but the members of the group usually perform a variety of artistic creations in the fields of painting and graphic art, textile art, writing, visual art and design. Since 2005, ARKIR has held a number of Book Art exhibitions in Iceland and abroad. Many of the works in the exhibition have been shown around the world, but this time the works have been selected especially with Skriðuklaustur's exhibition space in mind. This exhibition, which was opened 2nd April and will be up until 1st May, marks the opening of the cultural centre this spring. From now on in April and May the centre and café are open daily from 11:00 - 17:00.
