FRUITS OF EARTH AND IMAGINATION
Safnasafnið / The Icelandic Folk and Outsider Art Museum
Svalbardseyri, Akureyri, Iceland
June 6. to September 13th 2020
The exhibition draws predominantly on the Museum’s collection, with the objective of showcasing art works and objects by a large number of artists and makers, and their ideas, methods and choice of materials. Some of them were invited to submit works to the show. Certain pieces in the collection are of such a nature that they hardly belong on display, except within the context of a specific theme, as they do not stand on their own. But they deserve to be given an opportunity, as they may offer an unexpected element that serves to support some more spectacular piece.
The exhibition comprices 110 artworks and objects by 88 artists. Among the exhibited works is a piece by Rúrí.
Curator: Níels Hafstein
