REYKJAVIK.- SEQUENCES is an international cross media festival in Reykjavík with the focus on time based art phenomena. The festival links contemporary visual art with other media, especially sound and performative art. Artists from Iceland and the rest of the world participate in this premiere. The festival will take place in different locations in the city center of Reykjavík, accompanied by exhibitions and video/performance nights. SEQUENCES will invade established spaces (museums and galleries) as well as public spaces in the city center of Iceland ’s capital. A fine selection of international and local artists will participate in this unique event. The strong interrelation between visual arts, sound and performance arts is significant for Iceland ’s vibrant art scene. These nexuses are accountable for specific dynamic creative processes which develop especially in time-based art projects.

The festival will start in the afternoon of Friday, October 13 with the official opening in the festival’s artistic center, The Living Art Museum, followed by a series of performances in public space. The patron of the festival, Iceland’s first lady Mrs Dorrit Moussaieff, will officially open the festival. The afternoon of Saturday, October 14 is mainly dedicated to the institutions which will open their exhibitions accompanied by performances. A series of video- and performance nights with a rich program of international and local artists in cooperation with other institutions and festivals build the attractive frame of the festival. The venue is an old theater at the pond. The series will start on Tuesday, October 17 with screenings of international videos and music. Numerous performances and screenings will take place during the two weeks, partly linked to Iceland ’s famous music festival AIRWAVES. The festival will close on Saturday, October 28 with an Icelandic performance night at Tjarnabíó.
