THE WHEEL V: ALL IS WELL, the fifth and final edition of The Wheel, opens June 9th 2022 during The Reykjavik Art Festival. THE WHEEL I-V is a series of five outdoors exhibitions held annually around the city since 2018 by the Reykjavík Association of Sculptors leading up to their 50th anniversary, August 17th 2022. The first exhibition was part of the Reykjavík Arts Festival in 2018 and now the circle will close with the fifth and final instalment.
This time, artworks by eight artists will appear in the oldest neighbourhoods of Reykjavík as the exhibition weaves its way through areas 101, 102 and 107 Reykjavik. Varied nature, the artists’ works shed new light on our everyday surroundings, provoking a deep study of both area and history while simultaneously examining the more complex social stratification of the cityscape. THE WHEEL V: ALL IS WELL is a fascinating opportunity to experience the familiar in new ways, to get to know the works of a truly diverse group of artists and ponder the time and space of the city, in your own time.
THE WHEEL V: ALL IS WELL is made in collaboration with The Reykjavik Art Festival and The Nordic House in Reykjavik, with support from the City of Reykjavik and Visual Arts Fund.
