Published November 5, 2010

SEQUENCES Art Festival is an annual independently run festival, established in Reykjavík in 2006 by four artist-run galleries. Its aim is to produce and present progressive visual art with a special emphasis on time-based art, such as performances, sonic works, video art, art in public space, and to create a cross-platform for these art forms. The fifth Sequences Art Festival will be held from April 1-10, 2011, and promises a range of performances, happenings, discussions and lectures, involving a number of Icelandic and international artists.  Sequences will accept applications until November 12.
