The annual film festival for kids and teens is here again. Bíó Paradís is serving a wide selection of children’s movies from all around the world for the youth to watch. This event lets families enjoy the art of movies together, and allows them to explore different cultures through film. That sounds like a lovely way to learn about our planet and its people.

Once more, with feeling! The greatest art out there goes beyond a singular sense, whether it be the addition of a textured touch, a soft smell or a curious sound.

Ásmundarsalur is taking that idea a step further with their newest exhibition, Sindri Leifsson’s “Næmi, næmi, næm”. The exhibit augments sculpture using our often most prized sense—taste—by inviting guests to dinner! Pairing sculptures made from Icelandic larch with taste sensations created using local ingredients, Sindri takes guests on a multi-sensory artistic adventure.
