BIRTA GUÐJÓNSDÓTTIR AT THE 58TH VENICE BIENNALE

09.05.2019

We are happy to announce that Birta Guðjónsdóttir, part of the PAVILION NORDICO jury and advisory board, is the curator of the Icelandic Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale of the Arts.

For this year’s edition of the Pavilion, Birta is working with New-York-based Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, a.k.a. Shoplifter. The opening of “Chromo Sapiens” on May 9th also includes Icelandic Cult metal band HAM, who composed an eponymous opus especially for the installation, and former PAVILION NORDICO residents Kolbeinn Hugi and FRZNTE, who will perform their infamous HYPER HYPER DJ and karaoke set.

For more impressions from the Venice Biennale, head over to our Instagram @pavilionnordico, where Hugi and FRZNTE are taking over the stories for the duration of the preview days.

Make sure to pay a visit to the The Icelandic Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, Spazio Punch, Guidecca, Venice, May 11–November 24, 2019.
