Marie Kirkegaard Gallery, Holbergsgade 17C DK-1057 Copenhagen
Group exhibition by Rieko Hotta, Thomas Lindvig and Tumi Magnusson
Opening reception on Friday, January 13, 5-7 PM
Icelandic artist Tumi Magnússon takes part in a group exhibition alongside Rieko Hotta and Thomas Lindvig in Copenhagen based gallery Marie Kirkegaard.
Tumi Magnússon (b. 1957) studied at AKI Enschede in the Netherlands and at Universidad de Granada. Until 2005 he was a professor at the Iceland Academy of the Arts; he currently teaches in Copenhagen. Tumi provoked immediate attention for his paintings in the mid-eighties and since then has been considered one of the more notable painters of his generation. Through the years his paintings have become less and less conventional, but his confidence and skill in the use of his medium have enabled him to explore new paths, including video installation and digital photography.
