Mayor of Reykjavík Jón Gnarr will open the exhibition Erró: The World Today at Reykjavík Art Museum, the Hafnarhús building, today at 4 pm. The artist himself, who was named honorary citizen of Reykjavík last year, will be in attendance.
The exhibition features Erró’s gifts to museum in recent years. His latest gift comprises a multitude of works, collages, oils, watercolors and enamels, which he has made over the past 12 years, as stated on the museum’s website.
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 bearing witness to the artist’s joie-de-vivre and creativity in juxtaposing images from around the world.
The exhibition is curated by Danielle Kvaran and will run through September 28, 2014.
