Soft Landing  MA Fine Art Degree Exhibition

The Living Art Museum, The Marshall House

May 4 – 26, 2019  Welcome to the opening of the MA Fine Art Degree Exhibition from the Iceland University of the Arts, Saturday May 4th at 17:00. The exhibition takes place in the Living Art Museum in the Marshall House.

MA studies in Fine Art offers a forum for students to deepen and widen their knowledge in the field of contemporary art. Through research-based studies occurring within the social context of fine art, individual vision and creativity are reinforced in connection with the theoretical assumption of the profession.

Soft Landing encompasses many facets of our human experience, and acknowledges powerful internal states and emotions. At the core of what these artists explore is what it means to be human in a world riddled with personal, social, cultural, ecological and environmental complexities. Their works present many findings and suggest persistent explorations into art’s capacity for communication, personal expression, and common language.

This year’s MA Degree exhibition sees the beginning of a three year collaboration between the Living Art Museum and the Iceland University of the Arts. It is an important collaboration and connection for both parties. It connects the MA fine art students directly with an internationally renowned, well established and respected art institution. For the Living Art Museum the collaboration creates further opportunities in supporting young and upcoming artists that are taking their first steps in this field and by doing so strengthen the Icelandic art scene overall.
