Guided Tours in English every Friday at 2 p.m.
Join our museum docent for a tour every Friday at 2 p.m. through the exhibitions of Jóhannes Kjarval (1885-1972) and Hildur Bjarnadóttir (b. 1969) from 14 Oct.-16 Dec.
Kjarval´s expressive paintings changed the way people in Iceland thought about art and nature. He worked outdoors, capturing the landscape and slowly started to pay more attention to the micro cosmos under his feet, merging it with fantasy and folklore.
Bjarnadóttir exhibits recent work based on an elaborate and interesting process. Like Kjarval, she explores the nature by her feet, collecting plants in order to dye thread and fabric for her work. Her research based project, entitled Ecosystem of Colors, explores questions of belonging and locality.
Admission included in museum ticket.
