Kaleidoscope: Icelandic 21st Century Art



The exhibition presents a selection of the works that have come to the museum in the last two decades.

The collection spans as much as possible the breadth and the new emphases that can be found in the Icelandic art scene, both by recognized artists of the time as well as the work of the younger generation of artists.

This year, in 2023, Reykjavík Art Museum celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the official opening of its first building in Kjarvalsstadir. On the occasion, special attention will be paid to the museum art collection and the opportunity will be used to view and display treasures from the museum´s collection.

This exhibition is the third one in the Kaleidoscope series, a series that features exhibitions in both Hafnarhús and Kjarvalsstaðir to honour the collection.
