Contemporary Icelandic Art: Hafnarhús Art Museum
Artists often feel compelled to exaggerate their separateness to the point of eccentricity. Consequently artist products take on to a still greater degree the air of something independent and esoteric. --John Dewey (1)
Erró: Graphic Art 1949 - 2009
The most accessible art exhibited at the Museum is the result of three years of work researching and collecting the entire collection of the artist Erró, one of Iceland's famous artists next to Björk. Erró, probably better known in Europe (the Pompidou museum has two pieces), worked in virtually every medium and subject from art history to social and cultural commentary.
