In June, artists Tuda Muda, Sigrún Hlín Sigurðardóttir and Unn Devik will be working together at Entrée, leaving behind works that will be on display throughout the rest of the summer. With a shared interest in the rich imagery, history and cultural heritage from folktales, they will use stories from their native countries of India, Iceland, and Norway as a starting point for material explorations in the gallery.
