The Cycle Music and Art Festival now in its second year, serves as an international and local platform for contemporary art music and visual art and the intersection between both disciplines. Deeply rooted in Iceland’s exceptional cultural scene, it uses the unique natural environment as an echo chamber in order to explore questions of deep time and peak futures. With an exhibition at Gerðarsafn Museum and other venues in Kópavogur and a rich programme of performances and concerts, CYCLE initiates collaborations and experimentation by erasing borders between disciplines and forges interdisciplinary productions which revolve around iterations, structured time, and eternal returns.
