Tak i lige måde: Contemporary Art from Denmark

Tak i lige måde: Contemporary Art from Denmark.
Event location: 


Four well-known Danish artists show their work at the exhibition Tak i lige måde: Contemporary Art from Denmark, which will be opened at the Reykjavik Art Museum in Hafnarhús on Friday evening 23 February at 20h00. The participants from Denmark are Jeannette Ehlers, Jesper Just, John Kørner and Tinne Zenner.

Jesper Just will attend the opening and will be in conversation about the exhibition and his works with curator Markús Þór Andrésson, in Hafnarhús at 21h00 on the opening night.

This year a hundred years have passed since Iceland became a sovereignty, marking the country's way to independence from Danish rule. Reykjavík Art Museum commemorates this watershed by inviting the Danish artists to exhibit their works in the museum. Things are presently stirring in Danish art, not least because of a changed worldview in the political and social realm. This unrest is reflected in all art creation and guests will get an insight into it in new works from our friends and former masters.

Mette Kjuel Nielsen, Ambassador of Denmark in Iceland, opens the exhibition.
