Vigdís Rún Jónsdóttir, art theorist, is the curator of the Zeitgeist – Contemporary art from the private collection of Skúli Gunnlaugsson
The exhibition comprises a diverse range of works from the collection of physician and collector Skúli Gunnlaugsson. The common factor of the pieces is that all were made in the last decade. The artists represented in the exhibition are of the younger generation of artists, who have made their mark on the Icelandic art scene in recent years. The exhibition Zeitgeist takes as its starting-point the artist’s relationship with the culture and zeitgeist of their time, and explores how societal upheavals may be observed through art.
