Reykjavik Art Museum’s Autumn 2014 Exhibitions are open to all
The Reykjavik Art Museum has been showcasing contemporary art since 1973. This autumn, the museum will present nine exhibitions in its three venues at different locations around the city: Hafnarhús (Harbour House)
The downtown location which is the museum’s institute of contemporary art, will display six exhibitions: Future Crash/Tribal TV, by Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir, from 6th September to 19th October 19, 2014. This is a large video installation comprising ten works that reference films set in the future. They all feature mystical beings that appear in mysterious places, but perhaps these beings in the future are fragments from our ancient memories. Flatland, by Sirra Sigrún Sigurðardóttir, from 1st November, 2014 to 25th January, 2015. This show integrates video, text, movement, and sculpture. The title, ‘Flatland’ refers to an 1884 book that used the language of mathematics and geometry to portray social hierarchy in a satirical way.

Tomas Saraceno (Argentina), Ernesto Neto (Brazil), Ragna Róbertsdóttir (Iceland), Ryuji Nakamura and Rintaro Hara (Japan), Mona Hatoum (Lebanon) and Monika Grzymala (Poland).
