Nr. 3 Umhverfing art exhibition in Snæfellsnes peninsula

Nr. 3 Umhverfing in Snæfellsnes peninsula is the most recent art exhibition of the art project Umhverfing, organized by the Academy of the Senses. The project travels around the country. At each location, there is arranged an art exhibition with the works of artists that trace their roots to the district in one way or another. The exhibitions make use of alternative spaces that are neither built nor intended for art exhibitions. In this way, they are creating new and exciting relations between the surroundings and the artworks. 

This time the exhibition hosts artworks by seventy-one artists. Some of the artists have made new works especially for the exhibition, and some of the artworks have previously been at exhibitions abroad but are now being premiered in Iceland.

The exhibition is divided between 16 location-centers around the Snæfellsnes peninsula.

Nr. 3 Umhverfing is organized in cooperation with the Academy of the Senses and the Snæfellsnes Regional Park (Svæðisgarður Snæfellsnes).  The curators are the artists Anna Eyjólfs, Ragnhildur Stefánsdóttir and Þórdís Alda Sigurðardóttir.
