D projects - 2007



A series of projects by young Icelandic artists will be featured in the D-Gallery of Hafnarhus.

D is a series of exhibitions at Hafnarhus, drawing its name from one of the building's galleries. It is intended as an ongoing project, by which the Reykjavik Museum hopes to draw attention to the work of promising artists who have not had prior private exhibitions in Iceland's major museums. All the artists will be creating new work for the space. The museum will publish an annual catalogue reviewing each year's shows. Curated by Reykjavik Museum staff.
