Group Exhibition Opens in Mosfellsbaer

By Iceland Review

The group exhibition “Lýdveldid vid laekinn” (“the Republic by the Spring”) opened yesterday [26.09.09] in the old wool factory Thrúdvangur (see picture) in Mosfellsbaer, a neighboring town of Reykjavík.

The exhibition is the last in a three-part project on the Icelandic republic in connection with its cultural history and the natural environment surrounding the three places of exhibition.

The first exhibition, “The Republic by the Lake,” was held last spring in a barn by lake Mývatn in northeast Iceland and the second, “The Republic by the Fjord,” in an abandoned fisherman’s hut at Eyri in Ingólfsfjördur fjord in the Strandir region of the West Fjords.

The participating artists are: Anna Jóa, Bryndís Jónsdóttir, Gudbjörg Lind Jónsdóttir, Hildur Margrétardóttir, Hlíf Ásgrímsdóttir, Kristín Geirsdóttir, Kristín Jónsdóttir from Munkathverá and Ólöf Oddgeirsdóttir.

The project, which is sponsored by Hladvarpinn – the Women’s Cultural Fund in Iceland, is an independent continuation of the group’s exhibition “The Republic of Iceland,” held in Thrúdvangur in 2004 to commemorate the republic’s 60th anniversary.

Thrúdvangur is located on Álafossvegur 20. It is open daily between 2 pm and 6 pm until the exhibition ends on October 11.
