Sequences 2011 will present a wide array of performances, events, discussions and lectures throughout Reykjavík and Seyðisfjöður, east Iceland.

The festival will be held for the fifth time from April 1 – 10, and will continue its main objective: to examine time-based art, performance, sound art, video and music, as well as to research the interaction of the genres, artistic space, and society.

This year, Sequences will focus solely on performance art and how it features in other artistic media. The festival will host over twenty projects in collaboration with The Living Art Museum, Kling and Bang gallery, Iceland Academy of the Arts, The Association of Icelandic Visual Artists, The Reykjavík Art Museum, The House of Ideas, The Nordic House, Hotel Saga and Skaftfell in Seyðisfjörður, centre for art in east Iceland.

A three-day lecture series will be held in the Iceland Academy of the Arts with various discussions about the medium. The main lecturers will be Gunnhildur Hauksdóttir, an artist and a board member of the Living Art Museum, and Agnes Nedregard, a Norwegian performance artist and editor of the Nordic performance forum Nordic Tantrum.

This year the artistic board of Sequences chose Iceland’s own Hannes Lárusson to be the festival’s honorary artist. His project will have the honour of opening the festival on Friday, April 1 in Kling and Bang gallery, Hverfisgata 42, 101 Reykjavík.
