New exhibition – Iðavöllur: Icelandic Art in the 21st Century
The exhibition Iðavöllur will be opened at Hafnarhús on Thursday, 10 June at 20-22h00. Mayor Dagur B. Eggertsson opens the exhibition.
Due to construction in Tryggvagata, the entrance to Hafnarhúsið is through Portið, from Naustin – between Hafnarhús and Tollhús.
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.
