BALDESSARI IN ICELAND
March 31 – June 17, 2001

Reykjavik Art Museum 

New works and an artist’s book by John Baldessari in Reykjavik Art Museum in Iceland.

New works by John Baldessari will be on view at The Reykjavik Art Museum – Harbour House. March 31st – June 17th, 2000

Baldessari visited Iceland for the first time last year and his new pieces can been seen as a response to that experience. The exhibition, titled “While something is happening here, something else is happening there: Works 1965-2001″, will also house older works by the artist. An exhibition catalogue is to be published along with the show, which is curated by the Icelandic artist and writer Thorvaldur Thorsteinsson. Additionally, the internationally active Gallery i8 in Reykjavik, in cooperation with The Reykjavik Art Museum, will publish a new artist’s book by Baldessari, “Brown and Green and Other Parables”, which will include images and new parables by the artist, based on Icelandic sayings. A hardcover version will be available at the opening date and a deluxe version some weeks later.
