So this is Christmas

4 December, 202123 December, 2021

The Christmas exhibitions at Ásmundarsalur re-awaken a 70-year-old tradition. In the 1940’s the exhibition hall housed group shows with works by the country’s leading artists alongside works of younger and less known artists. The artist group Print & Friends have been curating the exhibition since its revival. This year’s exhibition “So this is Christmas” is no exception and will be their 4th consecutive year. With around 450 works by approx 170 contemporary artists, this year’s focus being new works, we know it will be the best one yet. According to tradition the works are for sale and can be wrapped in silkscreen-printed Christmas gift paper by staff members.
Print & Friends will install a custom-built printmaking workshop in one of the exhibition spaces where a careful selection of artists will work in situ producing artworks every day until Christmas.
