Taste of Iceland in Seattle: Iceland’s Art Scene
Join Björg Stefánsdóttir, director of the Icelandic Art Center, at the Bellevue Art Museum for a discussion of Icelandic visual arts. Björg Stefánsdóttir will offer insight into how Iceland (with a population of 340,000) is able to sustain a thriving contemporary art scene. Hear how Icelandic art has spread across the world through the artist-driven community and The Icelandic Art Center. The Icelandic Art Center is the commissioner for the Icelandic Pavilion, exhibiting the current scene in Iceland. It’s an extremely important platform for Icelandic artists as it facilitates strong connections to international art professionals. Admission is free and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis, so come early!
