Summer exhibition at the Icelandic Folk and Outsider Art Museum
6 May–10 September
This summer, the museum is presenting 12 new exhibitions featuring the works of 15 artists and students from the Álfaborg elementary school and Valsár primary school. Emphasis is on fresh ideas and refined craftsmanship, glassblowing, embroidery, silver work, ceramics, photography, screen printing, and woodworks. The museum also showcases three deceased visual artists whose lives were marked by great adversity in our Created from Collections exhibition. One of the themes explored in 2023 is how visual art can help individuals cope with self-harm and contain it. Despite the seriousness of the content, the museum’s exhibitions are bright, colourful, and accessible to all.
