ERRÓ Opening and Anniversary, Hafnarhús, Saturday September 1st at 4 p.m.


For the first time the general public are able to view Erró’s graphic art spanning half a century. The exhibition is the result of three years’ work researching and collating the artist’s entire collection of graphic pieces, undertaken by Danielle Kvaran, the exhibition curator. These works of art reveal a variety of techniques, including stamp-prints, lino and wood cuttings, etchings, lithographs and silk-prints. It is in the latter that Erró has focused more on digital printing. Most of Erró’s graphic art is based on his older works, such as his paintings, collages and drawings.

Erró has collaborated extensively in workshops with a variety of different graphic artists, as well as with printers and publishers of his works in France, Italy, Sweden and elsewhere in Europe.


In relation to the 80th Birthday of Icelandic artist Erró, Reykjavik Art Museum will host a series of events this coming fall semester. Events include workshops, lectures and talks that will offer a further insight to the work of Erró and his general practice.
