Landscape for the Chosen Ones – Curatorial Talk

Sunday December 10th at 2 p.m., we invite you to a curatorial talk of our autumn exhibition, Landscape for the Chosen Ones, with Eva Lín Vilhjálmsdóttir and Odda Júlía Snorradóttir, following the reopening of the exhibition this past weekend, as the upper gallery of the museum was closed for a few weeks during the installation of a new lighting system in the space.

The exhibition explores the aesthetics of escapism. We live in a time of overwhelming and drastic changes within a society that increasingly expects individuals to take personal responsibility for global issues. Therefore, escapism has become intertwined with everyday life, yet its manifestations are multifaceted, although they often reflect the situations they are sprouted from.

The participating artists are Arna Beth, Fritz Hendrik IV, Margrét Helga Sesseljudóttir, Sól Hansdóttir, Vikram Pradhan, Bíbí Söring and Þrándur Jóhannsson, but the exhibition also features works by Eiríkur Smith, Patrick Huse and Sigrid Valtingojer from the collection of Hafnarborg and the ASÍ Art Museum.

Free entry – everyone welcome.
