Skaftfell - Center for Visual Art, located in Seyðisfjörður East Iceland, plays the essential role of presenting, discoursing and encouraging the development of contemporary art in eastern Iceland. It is a meeting point for artists and locals, and its activities are based on exhibitions and events, alongside an international residency program and outreach program.
Artists as agents of institutional exchange is the joint initiative of two institutions, one from Romania and one from Iceland, to create a collective platform with the purpose of better understanding and developing institutional mechanics with the help of artists.
