Over 130 applications for D-Gallery
More than 130 artists expressed an interest in participating in the D-Gallery Series at Reykjavík Art Museum – Hafnarhús in 2019. Four artists will be selected so the selection committee is faced with a difficult task to go through all the applications. The four artists will be announced on 13 October, at the opening of the 34th D-Gallery Show with works of the artist María Dalberg. Both Icelandic and foreign artists sent in applications.
The series in D-Gallery in Hafnarhús began in 2007 and over thirty artists have been presented through these series. The exhibitions aim to present artists with a strong and personal artistic vision who have not held a solo exhibition in a public museum before. The artists in question must not have held a solo exhibition in a public museum before, and they must be connected to the Icelandic art scene through studies, exhibitions or residence.
Through this project artists get an opportunity to present their work in a professional setting and acquaint themselves with the guidelines which public museums follow in their activities. Simultaneously museum visitors gain an insight into new trends and currents in contemporary art.
