About the Artists
An electronic artist, Hermigervill is known for his truly unpredictable and quirky live performances filled with human musical emotion. Retro Stefson takes an adventurous approach to pop music that Iceland is known for, combined with distinctly ‘Afropop’ elements. Led by Mar Sigfusson, Sin Fang’s most recent album, Flowers, is described as “indie-rooted but vast, quirky at times but crystal-clearly aiming at the stars in other places.”
SPACE is a nonprofit contemporary arts venue that fosters true creativity through their mission to present contemporary emerging and unconventional art, artists and ideas. SPACE embraces risk and innovation through bold programming choices and curiosity-driven curating of exhibits and events. As an incubator, SPACE helps emerging and mid-career artists present their new work, while making unconventional art and ideas more accessible to the general public.
