The Visual Arts Council has selected the fifth, and final, edition of The Wheel as the group show of the year. The Wheel V: All is Well was held in the oldest neighbourhoods of Reykjavík. The Wheel is a series of five outdoors exhibitions, held annually around the city since 2018 by the Reykjavík Association of Sculptors, leading up to their 50th anniversary on 17 August 2022. Kristín Dagmar Jóhannesdóttir curated this final edition of The Wheel, which took place in postcodes 101, 102 and 107. This time, artworks were installed by eight artists, all of whom are members of the Sculpture Association, except for Swedish artist Ulrika Sparre, who was the exhibition’s international visiting artist.
