The Reykjavík Art Museum is housed in three unique buildings in different parts of the city. One of which is Kjarvalsstaðir, named after Iceland’s most beloved painter, Jóhannes Kjarval (1885-1972). The current exhibition focuses on Kjarval’s key works and offers an unique overview of his prolific career.

The works of Iceland’s most eccentric painter, Erró, are on display in Hafnarhús, which is located downtown by the harbor. While Erró is on permanent display, Hafnarhús is simultaneously a melting pot for young and aspiring artists from Iceland and abroad and promotes all types of contemporary art. The third building is the sculpture museum Ásmundarsafn, former home and studio of the sculptor Ásmundur Sveinsson. His works are often displayed with works by other artists.
Among the highlights of this season in Reykjavík Art Museum is the Kjarvalsstaðir exhibition of Steinunn Siguraðardóttir’s fashion designer, who has gained a worldwide recognition for her timeless and unique clothes design. At Hafnarhús the internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara has made a new installation specially designed for the gallery, with special shipping containers equipped with peepholes and window. The museum buildings are open daily and entrance is free to all exhibitions.
