Rhyme - Works by Ásmundur Sveinsson and contemporary artists

2 May 2009 – 18 April 2010

Ásmundarsafn

The sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson was a 20th century man shaped by the 19th century. He took on various subjects in his art; at times looking to his heritage and the age that shaped him, and at others looking to the future, technology, and science. This exhibition showcases contemporary artists that tackle similar issues as Ásmundur did in his time, but in a context of a new age. All though presentation, thought and process might be somewhat different , the struggle is the same in a new century. In addition to Ásmundur's works, the exhibition displays works by Birgir Snæbjörn Birgisson, Davið Örn Halldórsson, Eirún Sigurðardóttir, Finnur Arnar Arnarson, Guðrún Vera Hjartardóttir, Hrafnkell Sigurðsson, Kristín Gunnlaugsdóttir, Ólöf Nordal, Pétur Örn Friðriksson, Sara Riel and Steingrímur Eyfjörð.

Curators: Ólöf K. Sigurðardóttir and Sigríður Melrós Ólafsdóttir.
