Gallery SAFN to Close for Undecided Time

Modern art gallery SAFN, located on Laugavegur in downtown Reykjavík, will close on December 30 and it has not been decided when it will reopen. Curator Pétur Arason hopes Icelandic contemporary art will receive more support in the future.

In a statement issued by SAFN, Arason and the gallery’s manager Birta Gudjónsdóttir, say they wish that Icelandic contemporary art will be given the opportunity to develop and grow so that it can be exhibited regularly along with international contemporary art.

SAFN will be open this weekend between 2 pm and 5 pm and again from December 27 to 30, which is the last chance to visit the gallery until further notice. SAFN would like to thank its guests, partners and contributors and wish them happy holidays.
