Fashion designer Steinunn Sigurðardóttir on The Artwork of the Week

Fashion designer Steinunn Sigurðardóttir discusses her selection for the Artwork of the week on Thursday the 14 March at 12:15. The event is held in relation to Zoom Out – Salon exhibition from the collection currently on show at Reykjavíkk Art Museum – Kjarvalsstaðir with special relation to the launch of Design March festival.

This unusual exhibition gives visitors a rare opportunity to see the Reykjavík Art Museum’s vast collection of Icelandic art. Artworks in a variety of media are shown in a constantly changing display over almost four month period. The exhibition hall will be in state of a perpetual flux, as art handlers constantly install new works and remove others, even as visitors roam through the gallery space. This is an opportunity to get an unedited view of Icelandic art, for everything will be brought out of storage and displayed without curatorial pre-selection.

Program for the Artwork of the Week:

Thursday 21 March, 12:15
Andri Snær Magnason writer

Thursday 4 April, 12:15
Einar Bárðarson director of Visit Reykjavík

The talk takes place in Icelandic. Further details announced soon.
