Now there is a last chance to see two exhibitions at Hafnarhús. The last day of Hafnarhús – Depot of Ideas in the City Centre is Thursday, 16 July and of Sol LeWitt is Sunday,  19 July.

LeWitt is recognized as one of the key founders of Conceptual Art, an international movement of art that began in the 1960s. Spanning 30 years of LeWitt’s career, the exhibition includes important early wall drawings and ephemera, as well as later examples, including several works that illustrate important transitions in LeWitt’s career in the 1980s and 1990s.

The exhibition Hafnarhús – Depot of Ideas in the City Centre is held on the occation of that this year marks the 20th anniversary of Hafnarhús becoming one of the three buildings of Reykjavík Art Museum. The exhibition focuses on the building and its history and transformation is viewed through sketches and photographs, among other things. It also examines how the museum building, as a space, interacts with the art and connects to its environment, the city centre.
