art:i:curate artist Florence Lam teams up with her fellow artist Rebecca Digby to curate 'the end of no relevance' a group exhibition at Iceland Academy of the Arts.
This exhibtion, which is the second in the 'Spark Plugs' series of exhibitions, is the result of a collaborative process between artists Florence Lam and Rebecca Digby, featuring Art Theory students Inga Björk Bjarnadóttir, Birkir Karlsson and Magnús Jensson.
The press release and texts for this exhibition are only visible by visiting the show, turning the documents into a part of the artwork itself.
'Spark Plugs' is a series of group exhibitions where first year students of the MA Fine Art programme have the opportunity to present to the public the result of their collective effort and collaboration at the premises of the Iceland Academy of the Arts.
The exhibition will run until April 6th, 2016.
We are also very excited to announce that Florence has been selected to participate in the 'Paradise Air' residency programme taking place in Japan this summer where she will present a new series of performances.
