Thursday April 28
Welcome reception at Ásmundarsafn – museum, from 18:00 – 19:30
Ásmundur was one of the pioneers of Icelandic sculpture, finding inspiration in Icelandic nature and literature. The Museum is housed in a unique building, once the artist’s home and studio, and which he donated to Reykjavik City along with a large collection of his work. The building was in most part designed by the artist himself in the years 1942-59. While there are always works by Ásmundur on display, Ásmundarsafn also regularly holds exhibition of works by other artists,
which often tend to have some reference to Ásmundur’s art. The Museum is surrounded by an elegant sculpture garden, boasting around 30 sculptures by Ásmundur. In Ásmundarsafn you will find magical shapes and a distinctive world.
Ásmundarsafn - museum is just across the street form Hilton Reykjavik Nordica Hotel
