Curator Talk: Iðavöllur
Good Thursday – the last Thursday of the month!
Curator Aldís Snorradóttir talks about the exhibition Iðavöllur: Icelandic Art in the 21st Century at Hafnarhús.
In Icelandic. Free entry, but registration is required HERE.
In 2021, Reykjavík Art Museum focuses on the microenvironment, with an aim of displaying the growth of the Icelandic art scene. The whole Hafnarhús becomes the setting for a powerful exhibition of new works by young artists who may be considered to be in the lead for their generation, and assumptions can also be made about the larger context of Icelandic and international contemporary art. It’s been a while since we checked in with what’s brewing among the fastest growing and most prominent artists and reflects subjects and approaches of the present.
New entrance to Hafnarhús! Enter through the backdoor – from Naustin (between Hafnarhús and Tollhús).
