Erró for everyone - Gallery talk with Guðni Tómasson

Art historian Guðni Tómasson participates in a gallery talk on the life and works of Icelandic artist Erró, Sunday 11 November at 3 p.m.
Guðni recently visited the artist´s studio in Paris and will give his personal perspective on the artist´s work and carrier. In 1989, Erro (b.1932) presented the City of Reykjavik with a large collection of his works. Among these were paintings, watercolours, graphic works, sculptures, collages and other works of art that span his whole artistic career, all the way back to his childhood. The Erro Collection now consists of more than 4000 artworks and has a permanent residence at the Hafnarhus where it is presented with different retrospective exhibitions. Erro settled in Paris in 1958 and has held a great number of private exhibitions all over the world, and his works have been presented in an even larger number of group exhibitions. His art is represented in museums and public institutions in a number of countries worldwide.

The talk takes place in Icelandic.
