This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 29-06-2014 28-09-2014 15 The Katonah Museum of Art presents ICELAND: Artists Respond to Place The austere, beguiling landscape of Iceland functions as muse and material for its artists. Innately attuned to dramatic physical changes and extreme solar rhythms, Icelandic artists carry within them a heightened awareness of the environment as a dynamic, living entity. This is the first museum exhibition in the United States to focus exclusively on the rich and complex relationship of contemporary Icelandic artists to the singular geography of their island nation. This KMA-originated exhibition showcases twelve artists whose works cover a broad range of formal approaches and media, including painting, photography, sculpture, site-specific wall-drawings, and video installation. All artwork in the exhibition dates from the past ten years. The featured artists are Birgir Andresson, Eggert Petursson, Egill Saebjornsson, Einar Falur Ingolfsson, Georg Guoni Hauksson, Guojon Ketilsson, Guorun Einarsdottir, Katrin Sigurdardottir, Olafur Eliasson, Ragna Robertsdottir, Ruri, and Pordis Alda Siguroardottir. The exhibition is curated by Pari Stave. In the Beitzel and Righter Galleries. Through Sep. 28. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=164023 Katonah Museum of Art true DD/MM/YYYY
