Last weekend Zoom Out, a salon exhibition from Reykjavík Art Museum’s collection, opened at Kjarvalsstaðir.

There, artworks in a variety of media will be shown in a constantly-changing display over a three-month period, until May 20.

The exhibition hall will be in state of a perpetual flux, as art handlers constantly install new works and remove others, even as visitors roam through the gallery space.

The photo series Found/Dot by Paula Prats is currently on display at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography. Each item in the series consists of two pictures, a snapshot from the 1960s and a recent self-portrait. The exhibition runs through March 26.

In i8 Gallery, Seascape by Ragna Róbertsdóttir will be running through March 9. Characterized by ambiguities of time and place, her works consist of natural materials from the sea, including shells, gathered at the beach of Arnarfjörður, the West Fjords.

On February 16, the exhibition Lucksmith by Eirún Sigurðardóttir of the Icelandic Love Corporation, which is inspired by gender studies, will open at the ASÍ Art Museum, running through March 10.

Currently running at the museum is Part of a Part of a Part: Episodes I-III by Bjarki Bragason, where questions of time and history are manifested in sculptures, photographic installations and videos. It closes on February 10.

This weekend, museums in the capital are celebrating the Winter Lights Festival.
