Hjrds Frmann and Magns Helgason
August 25ᵗʰ 2018 - August 18ᵗʰ 2019

In the renovated version of Akureyri Art Museum, a new and unique facility dedicated to museum education, will become available. This will create an opportunity for a new approach in the art-education program, based on projects and workshops. This new space will also be used to exhibit work by various artists and the ones who will open the first exhibition are Hjrds Frmann (born 1954) and Magns Helgason (born 1977).

Hjrds is known for her use of pure colors and vibrant color combinations, as well as using music boxes in her work. Magns often works with found objects and text frequently plays an important role in his work. Joy and playfulness mixed with diverse references characterize the work of both artists. Together they create an exciting exhibition that can enrich and empower the imagination of children of all ages.

Curators: Gurn Plna Gumundsdttir and Hlynur Hallsson.
