Reykjavík Culture Night – Curator Talk: Stitces and Threads

Reykjavík Culture Night – Curator Talk: Stitces and Threads
Event location: 

Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir, one of two Stitches and Threads' curators, will talk about the exhibition at Kjarvalsstaðir on Saturday, 20 August at 18h00. In Icelandic.

Stitches and Threads is an exhibition of works by contemporary Icelandic artists who embroider or make use of the needle and thread as a tool in their art. They either look to the past to work with the heritage of the craftsmanship and its tradition, or employ the needle as a tool in progressive experiments with other media. The exhibition includes new and recent works by a varied group of artists, both representatives of the younger generation, and artists who have made their mark on the Icelandic art scene. What they all share is that they have lovingly taken to the needle as an important tool in their artistic practices. The works reflect a vast range of subject matter, as they confront social issues alongside the poetic of everyday life and tenderness of nostalgia.
