About the Online Exhibition Catalogue
Welcome to the online catalogue for Art=Text=Art: Works by Contemporary Artists, a traveling exhibition of 109 works of art by 49 artists drawn from the collection of Sally and Wynn Kramarsky.
The exhibition will be on view at Hafnarborg in Hafnarfjörður, Iceland, from May 18 to June 23, 2013. For more information on visiting Art=Text=Art at Hafnarborg, please see the Museum’s website.
This online exhibition catalogue pairs each artist’s work with a written or creative response from one of our contributors. Contributors include artists, writers, poets, critics, and undergraduate and graduate students in art history, criticism, and arts journalism programs.
Artists’ books and print portfolios included in the exhibition, only partially on display at Hafnarborg, are available in full digital format on this website.
