An expert-led tour
In the exhibition Multipolar, the artist Anna Rún Tryggvadóttir turns her attention to the earth´s magnetic field. This invisible magnetic field is the precondition for all life on earth because it protects the atmosphere from the poisonous rays of the sun. Rock strata show that the magnetic poles of north and south have been shifting since the origin of the earth and the four cardinal directions we use today, north, south, east and west, are therefore only a temporary phenomenon. How humans experience this inexplicable uncertainty becomes Anna Rún‘s subject matter in a holistic installation of two-dimensional and sculptural works.

The events calendar is aimed at senior citizens and is composed of specially designed tours as well as discussions with the museum´s experts on fine art, ongoing exhibitions and the work of the National Gallery of Iceland. The events create opportunities for guests to approach art and our national heritage from different perspectives. The National Gallery´s Quality Time events are always accompanied by coffee and pastries. The pastries are contributed by Bread and Co. which sponsors the project.
