Director of Visit Reykjavík on The Artwork of the Week, Kjarvalsstaðir – Thursday 4 April 12:15

Einar Bárðarson Director of Visit Reykjavík discusses his selection for the The Artwork of the week on Thursday the 4 April at 12:15. The event is held in relation to Zoom Out – Salon exhibition from the collection currently on show at Reykjavik Art Museum – Kjarvalsstaðir.

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 is in a 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.

The talk takes place in Icelandic.
