Opening: Archive of Missing Artwork and the Nýló Channel

Welcome to the opening of the first chapter of the research project Archive of Missing Artworks, on Saturday 9 July 2022 from 3-5 pm. A 3 pm, Sigríður Regína Sigurþórsdóttir, Nýló's collection manager, will talk to guests about the project, its origins and purpose.

What could have happened to the missing artworks? Where are they? Were they returned to previous owners? Transferred to another storage? Were they loaned for exhibition and never returned? Did they suffer irreversible damage? Are there any photographs of the works? Has anything been written about them? When was the last time they were shown? And what about the works we don’t know anything about? Where did they come from? Who is the artist? Do you have information for us? We invite you to join us in creating the Archive of Missing Artworks.

Archive of Missing Artworks will take over the exhibition space in the Marshall House from 9 July to 7 August this summer. At the same time, we will start recording material for the Nýló channel, a new podcast that launches in the summer, and invites members of Nýló to participate. The Archive of Missing Artworks works will continue in the museum's collection space in Völvufell for the following year.
