@ Kling & Bang

Lortur is an informal and ever-changing group of artists, filmmakers, writers, theater practitioners, dancers, musicians and others who share an inventive sensibility and a need to create. Every two years since 2002, the group has organized and held the Trommusóló biennial art exhibition. This year’s event will take place at Kling & Bang Gallery on Hverfisgata. The program will be dense, diverse and lubricated with creative joy. There will be an art show, video program, a series of concerts (organized in conjunction with Iceland Airwaves), dance performances, panel discussions, and an artist book will be published to coincide with the Biennale. The art show and video program curators are Davíð Örn Halldórsson Hamar and Kristján Loðmfjörð, respectively; music events are coordinated by Sigurður Magnús Finnsson; dance performances are organized by Gunnlaugur Egilsson; the panel discussion will be hosted by Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson; and the editors of the artists’ book are Hildigunnur Birgisdóttir, Bjarni Massi and Tinna Guðmundsdóttir.
