Listasafn Islands

Zoom out- Behind the scenes, Kjarvalsstaðir, sunday 14 April, 3 p.m.

Helga Lára Þorsteinsdóttir, head of collection department and Klara Þórhallsdóttir project manager of education at Reykjavík Art Museum, will lead a guided tour through the exhibition Zoom Out – Salon exhibition from the collection and introduce the research that is taking place alongside it.

This unusual exhibition gives visitors a rare opportunity to see the Reykjavik Art Museum’s vast collection of Icelandic art. Artworks in a variety of media will be shown in a constantly changing display over a three month period. The exhibition hall will be in state of a perpetual flux, as art handlers constantly install new works and remove others, even as visitors roam through the gallery space. This is an opportunity to get an unedited view of Icelandic art, for everything will be brought out of storage and displayed without curatorial pre-selection.

The talk will take place in Icelandic.
