The Chinese European Art Center is delighted to present the event “Rolling Snowball- 5” in partnership with the Municipality of Djúpivogur. The purpose of this exhibition and the summer artist-in-residency program it is connected with, is to promote dialogue and cultural exchange between Chinese and Western cultures, as well as to bring an art-loving public to Djúpivogur.
CEAC’s network is constantly expanding. Hundreds of artists from all over the world have worked at CEAC. This stimulates action and communication between people from a local to an international level. “Rolling Snowball-5” is CEAC’s first large scale event outside of China. We are very proud of our part in bringing these wonderful artists from China and Europe to Djúpivogur!
Rolling Snowball/5, Djúpivogurpresents works of thirty-three visual artists from China and Europe who nearly all exhibited for or worked as artists in residence at CEAC in China. The exhibition consists of photographs, paintings, sculptures, video and drawings. An exhibition catalogue will be available.
CEAC also opened an artist residency in Djúpivogur where artists can work. This summer two Dutch artists will live and work in the village during the summer months.
Collaboration is at the heart of this work. The huge show of solidarity and support received from the artists and the villagers has been of extraordinary importance to our success. Djúpivogur proved to be a perfect host for this event. Together, we are working to make this event at Djúpivogur something truly memorable.
Djúpivogur is a member of Citta Slow movement for small local organizations in 27 countries around the world. Cittaslow is the international mark of accreditation for municipalities that provide the highest quality living environment, local produce, hospitality, natural environment, infrastructure, cultural history and identity preservation.It is in this spirit that Djúpavogshreppur takes part in the exhibition in collaboration with the CEAC.
