The Factory Art Exhibition

12. June - 12. September

Price description

Free admission
The vision is to (re)create the immersive art exhibition, The Factory, in the remote town of Djúpavík. By building a bridge between the vanished fishing industry and new contemporary art, Djúpavík‘s old herring factory gains a modern and attractive aura. Contrasts merge and unify inside the old building. Thus, artworks will reference the spatial and environmental perception of Djúpavík and of Iceland as a whole.
Open 10.00-18.00
12 June to 12 September 2021
Free admission
In 2019, we introduced a new exhibition space in the opposite end of the Westfjords. The Tub / Balinn is an old house in the village of Þingeyri and will host an art exhibition throughout the Summer 2021. The factory in Djúpavík and the old house in Þingeyri have several things in common: ravaged, authentic, abandoned – and embody the forgotten times of the people, who once had their daily lives and routines there. Our overall idea is to establish a connection between two small places in the western region of Iceland - and to give the house a new purpose.
Brekkugata 8, 470 Þingeyri
Open daily from mid-June to mid-September  2021
