The Living Art Museum will move its collection to 111 Reykjavík

The Living Art Museum will move its collection and archives to a new location by the end of May 2014.

The board will announce new opening hours as soon as the moving has been completed.

The new facilities are in Völvufell 13-21, 111 – the upper east side of Reykjavík, Breiðholtið, and consist of 400m2 space in the vicinities of the local swimming pool, Breiðholt College and Fab Lab Innovative Centre.

Over the next years the museum will store the collection in Breiðholtið, which comprises around 2,000 works, along with the main archives: the Archive of Nýló, the Archive of Artist-Run Initiatives and the Performance Archives.

The board will put up two exhibitions per year, with works from the collection and provide guided tours about the museum and collection. Nýló will also provide a research and study room for those committed to specific projects concerning the museum.
