Curator Talk: Mentor
Curators Edda Halldórsdóttir and Sigurður Trausti Traustason will talk about the exhibition Mentor: Ásmundur Sveinsson and Carl Milles at Ásmundarsafn. In Icelandic.
The exhibition features the works of sculptors Ásmund Sveinsson (1893-1982) and Carls Milles (1875-1955) from Sweden and is part of the collaboration between Millesgården Museum and Ásmundarsafn- both museums dedicated to the life and work of the two artists. Carl Milles is one of Sweden's most respected sculptors and, like Ásmundur, he donated his house, studio and work to the public after his death. Carl Milles was Ásmundur´s mentor during his student years in Stockholm. In 2020 it was 100 years since Ásmund started his studies at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts under Milles' guidance.
