Reykjanes Art Museum – Dedication

“Somewhere inside the mass I saw the final form”
This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Valgerður Guðlaugsdóttir, our friend and fellow artist.
Inspiration and ideas can appear in many forms and come from many directions, but the idea for this exhibition came from a dream that one curator had about the red color which Valgerður used in many of her works. It can be said that this exhibition is the fruit of that dream.
The curators: Anna Hallin, Olga Bergmann and Guðrún Vera Hjartardóttir. They chose 8 artists to show with Valgerður’s work and with this the curators wanted to create a context – to weave together a certain narrative and conversations with other strong women artists of different generations.
The artists are Brák Jónsdóttir, Hildur Henrýsdóttir, Hildur Hákonardóttir, Inga Svala Þórsdóttir, Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir, Rakel McMahon, Rósa Sigrún Jónsdóttir og Sigrún Gyða Sveinsdóttir.
Dedication is sponsored by the Museum Council of Iceland and the Icelandic Visual Arts Fund.
