The Will as a Weapon – Artist’s talk on last exhibition day. Kjarvalsstaðir, Sunday 7 November 3 p.m.

On the last exhibition day of The Will as a Weapon, Ragnheiður Jónsdóttir one of the twenty seven artists will participate in a guided tour through the exhibition with the curator Hrafnhidlur Schram.

The so-called women‘s decade left a significant mark on the history of Iceland. This turning point is remembered in the exhibition, The Will as a Weapon - Review 1970 – 1980.
The aim of the exhibition is to shed a light on women‘s artwork of this decade with emphasis on the diversity characteristic of this era, particularly how they used traditional media, such as weaving, to express their message and their reckoning of the old.
