Erró – Posters

7 January – 14 March 2012


Exhibition posters have two major functions; to inform the public about an existing exhibition and what‘s on exhibit and to attract visitors to the site (a museum or a gallery). The posters combine useful information, both words and graphics, on specific artistic events, and with time they become a unique documentation. Reykjavik Art Museum recently received as a gift more than 100 of Erró‘s posters, including exhibition posters, in addition to the 137 posters that were included in Erró´s generous gift of art in 1989. This exhibition is the first opportunity the public has to view a selection of Erró‘s posters from the artists different private exhibitions in his career of 50 years.
The exhibition is curated by Danielle Kvaran.
