Artist

Rolling Snowball/6 is an international visual art exhibition that presents the works of 26 visual artists from Iceland, China, the Netherlands and other countries.

The exhibition was initiated by the Chinese European Art Center (CEAC) in Xiamen, Fujian province. CEAC, founded in 1999, is a non-profit art center with an artist – in – residence program open to visual artists, architects, designers, curators and writers. The art center’s exhibition calendar consists of ten to twelve shows annually, with supplementary programs including lectures and workshops, outdoor video and film festivals and concerts.

CEAC’s main task is to establish contact between Chinese and Western cultures. In Xiamen, CEAC has organised numerous exhibitions of Chinese and Western artists, and since 2010 large group exhibitions have been held in Shanghai, Quanzhou, Guangzhou and, for the first time in Europe, in Djúpivogur, Iceland in 2014.

After last years success CEAC is proud to present the second exhibition in Djúpivogur; Rolling Snowball/6, as well as the second summer artist – in – residence program.

We thank the Municipality of Djúpivogur for their good advice, support, their wonderful collaboration and for giving us the opportunity to show the exhibition in the old fish factory in Djúpivogur.

Last but not least we thank the artists for sharing their work with us, and the public in Iceland. It is with your participation that we are able to make this special project happen.
