Welcome to the Rolling Snowball 13, Djupivogur. Featuring the seventh collaboration between the Chinese European Art Center and the Municipality of Djupivogur in Iceland, this exhibition is also a record for this special year 2020.
In this exhibition we are proud to show the works of 20 young Icelandic artists who are (most of them) taking their first steps in the professional art world. Besides them we also show 10 artists from China, Holland and Iceland. We have found Kristin Dagmar Johannesdottir willing to be the curator for this edition of the Snowball and are thankful to her.
Over the past months (and even still) the world is confronted with huge challenges: Behavior is restricted, physical distance is required, relationships are redefined, and the inherent situation is changing rapidly, the various “new normal” make us feel the necessity to be closely connected, to learn from each other, to improve ourselves or increase our capacity as global think tank for each other.
Despite the uncertainties and devastating occurrences hope always exists and therefore after a careful consideration we have decided to do the Rolling Snowball exhibition as scheduled within the limits that the circumstances allow.
Finally, we would like to thank all the friends who participate in this project and the Municipality of Djupivogur. We hope that all of you will stay healthy and we are looking forwards to see you all again.
