Icelandic Artists Hit the New York City Art Scene
Two dozen Icelandic artists are currently featured in a prominent Chelsea gallery.
From April 13–June 10, 2017, the International Print Center New York will feature pieces of more than twenty Icelandic artists. The screenprints, etchings, digital work, artist’s books, and 3D prints work cohesively to communicate the ethos of Iceland.
Entitled, “Other Hats: Icelandic Printmaking,” the display is imbued with themes of storytelling, mythmaking, portraiture, landscape, mapping and the interrogation of material. Among some of the artists featured are Magnús Þór Jónsson (Megas), one of Iceland’s most renowned songwriters, and Hallgrímur Helgason, one of the country’s celebrated authors. The multidisciplinary approach to the project offers viewers a comprehensive look at some of Iceland’s top artistic minds. You can check out more information on the show here or visit it in person at the International Print Center New York in Chelsea!
