Exhibition Opening – D45 Baldvin Einarsson: Openings
Baldvin Einarsson is the 45th artist to exhibit in the Reykjavík Art Museum's exhibition series in Hall D. Baldvin was born in 1985 in Akranes but lives and works in Belgium. He graduated with a BA degree in art from Iceland University of the Arts in 2011 and completed a master's degree in the same subject from the Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp in 2013. He co-founded the artist-run exhibition spaces Kunstschlager in Reykjavík and ABC Klubhuis in Belgium. Curator is Birkir Karlsson.
In the exhibition Openings Baldvin examines the interplay between public space and individual space and raises speculations about what is predetermined, about free will, participation and self-image. He has worked in many media and often uses language as a material.
The D-Gallery exhibition series started in 2007. Emerging artists, who are shaping the local contemporary art scene, are invited to hold their first solo show in a public museum.
