Oh, So Quiet opens in Gerðarsafn

Dodda Maggý, Sigurður Guðjónsson and Steina are among the artists whose work will be presented at the exhibition Oh, So Quiet which opens in Gerðarsafn on Saturday January 12th at 4 pm.

„The exhibition consists of films, sound- and video works by both Icelandic and international contemporary artists. While the works may be different in style and subject, they are characterized by a balanced calm and profound serenity, as the exhibition title suggests. The focal point of the exhibition evolves around the relationship between music and film in contemporary art.“

The exhibition is curated by Pascale Cassagnau of CNAP (National Centre for Visual Arts) in Paris and Gústav Geir Bollason of Verksmiðjan Hjalteyri. For more information on the exhibition and how to get there, please visit the website of Gerðarsafn.
