RHYME – ARTISTS’ TALK SUNDAY, 14 JUNE AT 2 P.M. ÁSMUNDUR SVEINSSON SCULPTURE MUSEUM. (In Icelandic)
Next Sunday at 2 p.m. Birgir Snæbjörn Birgisson and Davíð Örn Halldórsson, two of the twelve artists exhibiting at the exhibition Rhyme, take part in a guided tour and discuss the coherence between their works, as contemporary artists, and the works of the twentieth century artist Ásmundur Sveinsson (1893-1982).
The exhibition showcases contemporary artists that tackle similar issues as Ásmundur did in his time, but in a context of a new age. All though presentation, thought and process might be somewhat different , the struggle is the same in a new century. In addition to Ásmundur's, Birgir Snæbjörn’s and Davíð’s Örn works, the exhibition displays works by Eirún Sigurðardóttir, Finnur Arnar Arnarson, Guðrún Vera Hjartardóttir, Hrafnkell Sigurðsson, Kristín Gunnlaugsdóttir, Ólöf Nordal, Pétur Örn Friðriksson, Sara Riel and Steingrímur Eyfjörð. Curators: Ólöf K. Sigurdardóttir and Sigrídur Melrós Ólafssdóttir.
Opening hours daily 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
