June 17th National Day 

Gerðarsafn and Garðskálinn bistro celebrate The Icelandic National Day. The museum is open from 11-17 and entrance is free of charge. Young artists in Kópavogur will perform various events at the museum. 

The exhibition The In, With and Between Us invites Gerður Helgadóttir (IS, 1928-75) into an ongoing conversation between Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir (IS), Theresa Himmer (DK/IS) and Emily Weiner (US), that started when the three artists were fellow MFA students at the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2011. Their research-based conversation around non-linear readings of place and time, language and translation took on a practical dimension in the fall of 2015, when they reunited to transform their shared research into the exhibition Speak Nearby at Soloway in Brooklyn, New York.
