A group exhibition that will reclaim historical artistic practices through a wide range of artistic approaches such as weaving, painting and sewing, while also communicating hidden stories of racism, colonialism, religious persecution and queerness.
Currently, there is not enough representation in the arts in Iceland and the Nordic countries in general when it comes to exhibiting artists of colour, queer artists and indigenous artists. With this project we hope to contribute to the important and necessary conversation about race, inclusion, representation and African/African American, Indigenous and queer history. We hope to increase the representation of brown, indigenous and queer artists working in the Nordic countries and to bring new voices to the Nordic countries that have not previously been experienced.
The project is of high artistic quality and highlights representation in a new and relevant way by placing the theme in a Nordic context.
Project leader: Daría Sól Andrews (IS)Cooperation: In this project participates artists from Finland, Iceland, Greenland and Norway.
