ARSLONGA, a museum of contemporary art, will open in Djupivogur on Saturday, July 9th.
The protagonist of the museum’s opening will be the exhibition Rúllandis njóbolti (Rolling snowball) Tímamót (turning point).
Rolling Snowball is a collaboration between ARSLONGA and the Chinese European Art Center (CEAC) in Xiamen, China. Further support for the exhibition comes from the Múlaþing and the Visual Arts Foundation. Both exhibitions will be held during the summer.
The new museum will be housed in Vogshus, Djupivogur, which was agreed to be a new exhibition space arranged in March last year.
The reason why it is in the center of the new museum and in Djúpivogur is the work of Sigurður Guðmundsson. Sigurður is probably best known for his work, The Eggs of Gleðivík. It consists of an array of 34 concrete replicas of bird eggs.
