Portrait of Thor Vilhjálmsson


Author Thor Vilhjálmsson was one of the founders of the Reykjavík International Literary Festival, which first ran in 1985.

This year marks its thirty-year anniversary, and to celebrate this occasion, a photo exhibition honouring Thor will be on display at Nordic House. Thor, who would have turned 90 this year, was a key figure in the success and development of the festival, and the exhibition will feature the work of several renowned artists who photographed him, as well as photos from his family collection.

Stills from the film Dream of the Way (Erlendur Sveinsson), which featured Thor walking the Way of St. James pilgrimage, will also be displayed.
This free exhibition will be on at Nordic House during the festival.
Produced in collaboration with Reykjavík UNESCO City of Literature.
Curated by Ragnheiður Vignisdottir.
