RÝMD is an exhibition space supported by the Iceland Academy of the Arts based in Breiðholt, within the former space of The Living Art Museum (Nýlistasafnið). Founded in 2017, the space is managed and programmed by a Board of Directors composed of current BA and MA students and exhibits work by national, local and international students that are currently studying at the Iceland Academy of the Arts or equivalent institutions.
RÝMD functions as an experimental and collaborative space to pursue projects that may not to be realized otherwise and is dedicated to providing exhibition opportunities for emerging artists in a professional setting.
RÝMD is accepting applications from students of the Iceland Academy of the Arts and abroad. We accept applications from both student artists and curators. You may apply to either the main gallery or the off-site video space which will be in the Fine Arts building at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. Exhibitions will typically run between 2-4 weeks, but applications that challenge this guideline are also encouraged (performances, screenings, pop-ups, etc.). RÝMD functions as an experimental and collaborative space to pursue projects that may not to be otherwise realized, so we favour new and recent work that has not yet been exhibited extensively.
