ANGELI NOVI NOMINATED FOR D.V. AWARDS IN VISUAL ARTS 09. March 2013

Angeli Novi have been nominated for the 2012 D.V. awards for the visual arts.

A statement from the selections committee of the awards reads thus:

"Angeli Novi achieved with their exhibition [You Can't Stand in the Way of Progress] on show this autumn in The Living Art Museum, what no one else in the field of visual arts has managed so far, which is to create work that tackles in a thoughtful way the economic and political crisis that happened here [in Iceland] in 2008.Their exhibition was acute and in many ways difficult - as good political art ought to be - but nowhere did they compromise when it came to aesthetic thought or the symbolic execution of the works.
