We shared a space, hiked along rocky trails, brainstormed over warm food, chatted about life, our creative dreams, personal growth, and opened ourselves to new experiences, camaraderie, and friendship. We experienced thoughtful workshops and beautiful moments throughout the program. In celebration, Light Grey Art Lab is hosting an exhibition of both the Iceland and Norway artists-in-Residence side by side - CURIO.
We have reunited our Artists-in-Residence with the teams they travelled with in order to create collections of work based on their experiences together. Moments in the landscape, emotional connections, and artistic discoveries, all presented in curated, collaborative mini-exhibitions. Please join us to celebrate and take in these glimpses of Iceland + Norway!
