Welcoming to the opening of the exhibition (Post)

18:00 - 20:00
Free entry

Welcome to the opening of the exhibition (Post), 7th June at 6pm. 


The curator and artists will be present during the opening.

The multimedia art exhibition (Post) presents artwork created between 2005 and 2021 by mainly Nordic artists who question and reflect our time and our future. An underlying theme of these diverse works is the anthropocene – the most recent period in Earth’s history when human activity has started to significantly impact the planet’s climate and ecosystems. Most of the works depict post-industrial structures that raise questions about how we might think of coming times.

Curated by Ruth Hege Halstensen, this exhibition at the Nordic House takes on urgent questions in striking ways, featuring work by a stellar lineup of artists:

Nana-Francisca Schottländer (DK)
Katie Paterson (GB)
Marte Aas (NO)
Rita Marhaug (NO)
Anna Líndal (IS)
Rúrí (IS)


The exhibition is part of Reykjavík Arts Festival 2024. 

Acessibilty to the Nordic House is temporarily restricted due to renovations outside. A ramp leads up to the main entrance of the building and from there an elevator goes down to Hvelfing, but at the moment the ramp is restricted by the construction site. There is also a staircase leading to the exhibition space outside. Accessible and gender neutral restrooms are on the mainfloor. Entrance to exhibitions in the Nordic House is always free.
