It’s tempting to imagine artwork coming alive in the storage rooms of museums where they are kept for years after having been exhibited. The title of the exhibit juxtaposes the connection that people make on a blind date with the connection that divergent art pieces form when presented together. The artworks are all from Gerðarsafn’s extensive collection—they come from various decades, and presented together give a fresh perspective on the Icelandic art scene.

There is a special party today at 15:00, where Kópavogur Mayor Ármann Kr. Ólafsson opens the exhibit. The show is at gerðarsafn, Hamraborg 4, and runs until April 10. Admission is 500 ISK. Check out the full listing here.
