Skaftfell

Skaftfell – Center for Visual Art

Skaftfell operates in the field of contemporary art, on a local and international level. It´s activities are based upon exhibitions and events, alongside a residency and education program. A Bistro on the ground floor serves coffee, beverages and food, plus free Internet and an art library. Skaftfell is also the guardian of a minuscule house previously owned by a local naïve artist Ásgeir Emilsson (1931-1999) and can be viewed upon request. In March 2013 Skaftfell received an Icelandic award, Eyrarrósin, as outstanding cultural project in a rural area. Skaftfell honorary artistic director for 2015-2016 is Scottish writer and curator Gavin Morrison.
