Kjarval – Insights: Warrior Maidens and Ships of Fancy
The drawings and sketches in the Reykjavík Art Museum’s Kjarval collection number in the thousands. In recent months Reykjavík Art Museum has been making these works available in digital form to facilitate research on Kjarval’s oeuvre and a closer examination of specific subjects in his work.

13 February – 25 April
Watery Hues: A Survey of Icelandic Watercolours
More than fifty artists display nearly two hundred works in water colour in the exhibition Watery Hues.  The exhibition is the first of its kind, spanning the 130-year history of water colour painting in Iceland, from 1880 – 2009.

Exhibition in Ásmundarsafn:
2 May 2009 – 30 April 2010
Rhyme – Works by Ásmundur Sveinsson and Contemporary Artists
The sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson often found his subject material in the heritage and age that had shaped him, but at other times he looked forward toward the future, technology, and science. This exhibition showcases contemporary artists wrestling with Ásmundur’s subjects in the context of a new century and zeitgeist. Though presentation, thinking, and process may differ, the struggle remains the same.
