The exhibition “Inclusion” featuring the work of visual artist Hildur Bjarnadóttir opens in ASÍ Art Museum in central Reykjavík September 1. The artist focuses on the fundamentals of visual art and handicraft traditions.
In her work, Bjarnadóttir represents the traditions of painting and drawing, as well as examines how handicrafts have developed through the ages. Bjarnadóttir’s work seems to reflect minimalism, but upon a closer look, it becomes clear that they have a wider reference.
Bjarnadóttir graduated from the Icelandic Academy of Arts in 1992 and with an MFA from the Pratt Institute in New York in 1997.
The ASÍ Museum is open every afternoon except for Mondays and admission is free.
