    Nína Tryggvadóttir (1913-1968) was among the most progressive visual artists of her generation, and a participant in the revolution that took place within Icelandic visual arts in the 50s and 60s. Colors, Forms and People is a collaboration with The National Gallery of Iceland and is partly based on Poetry Cast, an exhibition set up in The National Gallery in 2015.

    Through different media the works of Freyja Reynisdóttir (born 1989) address man’s obsession to define everything and that process which is spun from our common reality: experiences, memory and communication. The exhibition Stories is a continuation of these speculations, to which there are no correct answers.
