New Erró Exhibition: The World Today will be opened at Reykjavík Art Museum, Hafnarhús, next Saturday


Erró, The World Today, 2010.

The exhibition,  Erró: The World Today will be opened at Reykjavík Art Museum, Hafnarhús, on Saturday 5 October at 4 p.m in attendance of the artist. The curator of the exhibition is Danielle Kvaran. The Mayor of Reykjavík, Mr Jón Gnarr, will open the exhibition. The artist Erró will on the same occasion hand over an art prize from the Guðmunda S. Kristinsdóttir fund for the arts. The fund was established in 1997 with the aim of awarding an annual grant to recognize and empower the creation of art by women who have demonstrated excellence in their field.

This exhibition shows Erró´s gifts to Reykjavík Art Museum in recent years. The works add to the huge collection he has presented to the Museum from the year 1989. His latest gift comprises a multitude of works – collages, oils, watercolours and enamels – which he has made over the past eleven years. The works represent a new period in the artist’s career,  during which he has created his own visual world using new approaches and themes. These latest works bear witness to the artist’s joie-de-vivre and creativity in juxtaposing images from around the world.
