Reykjavik Art Museum

Location: Reykjavík, Iceland

2013 Exhibitions: Erró: Graphic Art (September 1 - August 25), Kjarval Complete (December 21 - May 20)

Founded in 1973, The Reykjavik Art Museum is the largest visual art collection in Iceland. It consists of three locations in Reykjavik—the Harbor House by old harbor, kjarvalsstaoir by Klambratun, and the Asmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum in Laugardalur. The three locations have 3000-square-meters of gallery space combined and run over 20 exhibitions a year, whether they are from the museum's collection or are contributions from young, international artists. The museum is in charge of the city's art collection, displaying pieces from its collection in public buildings, while the city is responsible for financing the museum in return.
