2019 is a year of public art at Reykjavík Art Museum. To mark this, two exhibitions will be opened in Ásmundarsafn; a new overview of Ásmundur Sveinsson’s works, Under the Same Sky, and a solo exhibition by Sigurður Guðmundsson, Intimacy and Sculpture. The exhibitions will be opened in Ásmundarsafn on Saturday, 19 January at 16h00.
Pawel Bartoszek, Chairman of Reykjavík Committee of Culture, Sport and Leisure, will open the exhibitions.
Sigurður is the first of five artists who will show their works in a series alongside Ásmundur’s exhibition. The other artists who will show in Ásmundarsafn this year are Brynhildur Þorgeirsdóttir, Jóhann Eyfells, Helgi Gíslason and Ólöf Nordal.
Reykjavík Art Museum focuses on art in public space this year. In addition to the exhibitions in Ásmundarsafn, the museum presents a new app, where information about the city’s outdoor works is shared with audio guides that can be enjoyed when walking around, cycling or playing games.
Curators are Sigurður Trausti Traustason, Head of Collections and Research and Yean Fee Quay, Exhibition Project Manager at Reykjavík Art Museum.
