Á Safnanótt, föstudagskvöldið 7. febrúar, stóðu ARKIR fyrir leiðsögn og bókagerðarsmiðju í tengslum við sýninguna HEIMA í Norræna húsinu. Fjölmargir gestir nýttu sér ókeypis aðgang og óvenjulegan opnunartíma safnanna allt til miðnættis.

Art lovers enjoyed Museum Night on Friday night, February 7th, at Reykjavík Winter Lights Festival 2014. ARKIR invited guests to a guided tour around the book art exhibition HOME in the Nordic house, as well as giving a free workshop in book making.

Það var svo óvænt ánægja að hitta einn af erlendu listamönnunum sem taka þátt í sýningunni HEIMA: Julia Pars frá Grænlandi. Hún var stödd á Íslandi til að taka þátt í öðru norrænu verkefni á Safnanótt, margmiðlunarinnsetningunni Vetrarljós í anddyri Þjóðminjasafnsins á vegum TURA YA MOYA listasmiðjunnar. (Sjá tengla!)

And then we got an unexpected visitor! We were delighted to meet one of the artists from Greenland: Julia Pars, who participates in the book art exhibition HOME. She was visiting Iceland for another Nordic project: an installation in the foyer of the National museum at the Reykjavík Winter Lights Festival 2014. The multimedia installation „Winter Light“ is a project of the art group TURA YA MOYA, run by Danish artist Karen Thastum. (See links!)
