New Colorful Exhibition at ASÍ Art Museum

The exhibition “Litadýrd” (“Colorfulness”) is currently running at the ASÍ Art Museum in Reykjavík. The exhibition features various paintings from the museum’s collection, chosen for the power of expression incorporated into the artists’ use of colors.

The artists whose work is on display don’t have much else in common, neither in regard to their subject matter nor their age, a press release from the museum explains.

The exhibition includes paintings by Svavar Gudnason, Thóra Sigurdardóttir, Jóhannes S. Kjarval, Nína Tryggvadóttir, Ásgrímur Jónsson, Jóhannes Jóhannesson, Hördur Ágústsson, Gunnar Örn Gunnarsson, Vignir Jóhannsson, Kristján Davídsson, Jóhann Briem, Sigrid Valtingojer and Jón Stefánsson.

Many of these artworks haven’t been displayed publicly for many years. The exhibition also includes sketches and other art on paper by Svavar Gudnason, which is part of a donation to the museum from Ásta Eiríksdóttir’s estate.

The exhibition, which opened on July 10, runs until August 29. The ASÍ Art Museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 1 pm to 5 pm. The museum is located on Freyjugata 41, 101 Reykjavík. Visit its website for further information.
