Nýló, The Living Art Museum Grandagarður 20, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland

The Living Art Museum (Nýló) is a non-profit, artist-run museum and association, venue for events, exhibitions, performances, discussions and research. Nýló was founded in 1978 in reaction to Icelandic art authorities disregard for contemporary art practices. The 27 founders, who met at an open meeting to discuss the then current situation in Icelandic cultural politics, were a diverse group at various stages of their artistic careers; some had been members of the SÚM movement, while others were still art students in the academy.
