PIANO

  • 29.5.2014 - 29.6.2014, Listasafn Íslands

The exhibition examines the piano in the context of contemporary society; as an instrument and an experimental platform for composers and musicans but also as the subject of visual artists and choreographers. The participating artists explore different aspects of the instrument, in sculptures, installations, performances and works on paper; its form, its mechanism, the soundboard and strings, its wooden case, as well as the Piano´s history and our perception of it. Most of the works on view have been specially commissioned for the exhibition which encourages interaction on behalf of guests. 

Curated by Tinna Þorsteinsdóttir, pianist.
