Attracting the Crowds

After the success of the Reykjavík Arts Festival this spring, our eyes have turned to the activities of Icelandic artists abroad and, indeed, they have been busy, pulling in visitors to exhibitions in Italy, New York and elsewhere. Out of the summer’s crop of shows we focus on the Icelandic participants in Manifesta 7 and on Ólafur Elíasson’s phenomenal success in New York, though there is much else that will have to wait for more detailed treatment in our next issue.

In this issue, we also introduce Katrín Friðriksdóttir who will be one of three Icelandic artists participating in the Liverpool Biennial in autumn, also covered more extensively in our next issue.
