Memories from Tomorrow at Reykjanes Art Museum, 12th March – 24th April 2022
The IUA welcomes you to the opening of Memories from Tomorrow, an exhibition curated by the Master students in Curatorial Practice at the Iceland University of the Arts, in Reykjanes Art Museum. It will be the second year in a row students from the Curatorial Practice will collaborate with the museum. Memories from tomorrow will open Saturday 12th March and is curated by Iona Poldervaart, Sara Blöndal and Sunna Dagsdóttir. The participating artists are Elnaz Mansouri, Hallgerður Hallgrímsdóttir, Sarah Degenhardt, Sarah Finkle, Victoria Björk, and Vikram Pradhan.
The exhibition Memories from tomorrow is a group exhibition that focuses on the future: our relationship with our surroundings, our stories, our dreams.
Memories are stories from the past and every day we are writing the stories we will have as memories in the future. Advances in technology significantly impact various aspects of our lives. The curators want todevelope a vision of what life may look like in the near future, and ponder the possibilities of that new world. Doing so sparks fundamental questions about the nature of affluence and of being human, and what constitutes life. Do we have control of our future? Of our dreams? Of our present time? How do we write our narratives and deal with our environment? How do we experience space and can we share a dream space? How will we live tomorrow and what will we look back on in the future?
Curatorial practice is a recent MA study progamme in the Department of Fine Art at the Iceland University of the Arts. It was founded in autumn of 2020 and is led by Professor Hanna Styrmisdóttir.
The exhibition will run until 24th April 2022.
