The 2014 Reykjavík Arts Festival will mark twenty eight years of celebrating this ‘multidisciplinary’ festival, offering diverse performances and exhibitions all over the city.
Over five hundred artists from twenty different countries will participate or show their work in this ‘creative intersection of the arts’ including over 60 concerts, plays, films, happenings and art exhibitions. Many of the pieces have been created especially for the festival or will be performed for the first time.
The theme for the 2014 festival is “Not Finished” identifying artistic creation as an ongoing and living process. Larger collaborative projects from a broad spectrum of artists are characteristic of the event as well as smaller events and individual exhibitions.
Landsvirkjun has sponsored the festival for the last three years and a newly signed contract will ensure that this rewarding and enjoyable cooperation will continue next year.
The Reykjavík Arts Festival officially opened on Thursday the 22nd of May.
