Venice, London, Reykjavík
Steingrímur Eyfjörð’s exhibition at the Biennale in Venice is proving a success with both critics and audiences and in London’s Serpentine Gallery, the retrospective of works by Hreinn Friðfinnsson has received excellent reviews and attendance. These two high-profile presentations of Icelandic art this summer bode well for Icelandic artists, reflecting the increasing interest in Icelandic art in general as well as, of course, the excellent work consistently produced by both artists over the years.
In Reykjavík, we are gearing up for the coming autumn which will bring us – among many other shows – retrospectives of both the Icelandic Love Corporation and of painter Eggert Pétursson who won second pirze in last year’s Carnegie Award exhibition.
