Special Exhibition: "Faroese Contemporary" ends

16 January is the last day to experience the special exhibition "Faroese Contemporary".

The special exhibition "Faroese Contemporary" (BROT in Faroese), which can currently be experienced at Listasavn Føroya, ends on Monday 16 January. If you haven't seen the exhibition yet, you still have the chance! When you buy a ticket to the museum, you get a free exhibition catalog about the special exhibition "Faroese Contemporary". You can also buy a "Faroese Contemporary" poster in our shop.

The exhibition “Faroese Contemporary” showcases contemporary art from the Faroe Islands in large formats. The artworks in the exhibition are versatile and explore new mediums, materials or expressions.

The artworks displayed in the exhibition have in common their exploration of new expressions, new media or new materials. Furthermore, the traditional, naturalistic representation of a tangible motif has been abandoned. Alternative materials such as polyurethane foam, mylar and long-life milk cartons are in use in the exhibition, while more traditional materials such as paints and wool are employed in a manner that moves away from Faroese traditions.

 

The artists in the exhibition are:

Alda Mohr Eyðunardóttir, Anný Djurhuus Øssursdóttir, Hansina Iversen, Jens Dam Ziska, Jóhan Martin Christiansen, Jón Sonni Jensen, Kirstin Helgadóttir, Ragnhild Hjalmarsdóttir Højgaard, Randi Samsonsen, Rannvá Kunoy og Silja Strøm.

Opening hours: Monday 11 am to 4 pm and Thursday to Sunday 11 am to 4 pm.
