Throughout the city of Reykjavik, from May 21 – June 5, contemporary and classic works of art will be on display during the Reykjavik Arts Festival. The festival is an annual multidisciplinary celebration with a special focus on new commissions and the creative intersection of the arts. For two weeks every year it presents, to the widest possible audience, exhibitions and performances of contemporary and classical works in major cultural venues and unconventional spaces throughout the city.
Since its inception in 1970, Reykjavík Arts Festival has invited hundreds of artists from all parts of the globe to perform or exhibit at the festival. The festival has helped to create a vast network of connections between national and international artists, been a catalyst for the creation of new works, and a major force in the development of cultural diversity in Iceland.
