The title of this exhibition, Icelandic Portraiture, includes several references appearing in the diverse range of artworks?an interesting mix and interplay of ideas on what is Icelandic, the contemporary era and what the word portrait stands for. All these ideas and often their unexpected interactions play a part in the design of the exhibition. Its main objective is to reflect on the concept of the portrait and what it can reveal. Its second objective is to show the Icelandic contemporary era through the interplay of different portraits and thereby create a mosaic, which will tell us something far beyond words. Overall, the goal is to exhibit portraits in a broad sense, showing diversity in methods, visual thinking and approaches in art creation.

All the artwork in this exhibition can be classified as portraits in some sense, where the artist seeks to reveal the uniqueness of the person portrayed in various ways. Some focus on the ways of the human being, showing her appearance and attitude in a simple manner. Others utilise the uniqueness of each person in order to highlight the priorities of contemporary society.

A mixture of those factors, is revealed in various ways in each picture. The hope is to show the viewer the diversity of our times, in Iceland?how both artists and their subjects are unique in their thought and imagination. The exhibition is then, in itself, a portrait of what we could call contemporary Icelandic.
