In January, I participated as a panelist during the Roni Horn art exhibit opening at the University Museum of Contemporary Art in Amherst, MA. Roni’s exhibit uses photography to examine themes of cyclicity and space in Iceland. For those that could not attend the opening, an edited version of the discussion panel is available here and at the UMCA website.
The panel discussion leads off with UMass geologist Julie Brigham-Grette speaking about the geologic history of Iceland. I follow Julie with discussion on the environmental and cultural history of the island. Then, Roni shares a series of her writings pertaining to her time in Iceland.
