(Ó)SÝN

On-going: 19th of November 2011 – 8th of January 2012, Gerðarsafn (Kópavogur)

The cover of the 2nd issue of Endemi

Endemi is a new magazine covering Icelandic contemporary art, with a special focus on Icelandic female artists. Affairs on equal rights has been the magazine focal point from the start. The main goal of the editors policy is to make art more accessible to the public and to work towards a more gender-balanced media coverage of art in Iceland.

To celebrate the second issue of the magazine, a group exhibition was recently launched at Gerðarsafn — a proper place for the editors policy — but the museum is dedicated to Gerður Helgadóttir, one of the most prominent Icelandic female artist of the 20th century. In the exhibition (Ó)sýn, fourteen artists were chosen to display their work, twelve women and three men. This unequal gender proportion is supposed to reflect — conversely — the usual 70/30% (70 male /30 female) gender imbalance in management of corporations, state power and the art world in Western countries.

I´m already looking forward to see the third issue of Endemi but the magazine is for sale in all major bookstores in Iceland. Personally, I think the magazine is a great and very needed addition to the limited media coverage on contemporary art in Iceland.

Thanks for us!
