Í kvöld: kl. 19:00 á Nes Listamiðstöð – Artist Talks.
Vytautas Michelkevicius is currently visiting Nes while undertaking a case study of remoteness in Icelandic residencies.
Vytautas visits Nes following on from our May Symposium at Nida Art Colony, Nida, Lithuania where we discussed over 4 days the challenges, advantages, directions, and ideas surrounding artist residencies in remote locations. The members of The Remote Residencies Network across the Nordic and Baltic regions also discussed our position or site specific context within the arts, the periphery, and the communities in which we operate. Our remote residencies collective are now facing the challenge of how to develop this network into a longer and more sustainable network.
Tonight at Nes we will be hearing more from Vytautas in a curators talk, alongside our new artists, who will present a short artist talk about their works or stay. All are welcome to join, we begin at 19:00 at the studios.
