Art in Translation
Art in Translation is a three-day international event where scholars and artists of all kinds deal with texts through lectures, exhibitions, concerts, and performances. The aim is to create an interdisciplinary forum to explore the connections between language and various art forms. This year the emphasis is on creative writing.
The conference will be opened on May 24 at 4 p.m. by Katrín Jakobsdóttir, minister of education, science and culture. Following her address, keynote speaker Robin Hemley will give his lecture. Other keynote speakers are Abé Mark Nornes and Calum Colvin.
Art in Translation is a biennial conference held by The University of Iceland, Iceland Academy of the Arts and The University of Manitoba in cooperation with the Nordic House, Ministry of Culture and Education, Reykjavík City of Literature and The Reykjavík Arts Festival. It is hosted by the Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute of Foreign Languages.
