If you don’t have any idea what to do during the week without sacrificing too much energy, as always we’ve got your back. From art to music to yoga, here’s a couple of chill things you can do between Monday 26th and Thursday 29th : don’t worry, the maximum effort required involves getting out of the house, so don’t think twice and just go for it.

About Looking
All week — Gallery GAMMA

Naked women drawing other naked women—nudes drawing nudes—is the impetus for this exhibit. The artists’ goal was not to capture reality but rather just to learn how to look. “Being naked isn’t easy. Even when you know and trust each other, it’s challenging,” one of the artists told The Grapevine. “But when you’re naked like this and free yourself of negative thoughts towards yourself, some gates open up. You reach a more pure creativity, without the complexity of acting.” HJC & JR
Gallery GAMMA is open only on working days, between 11:00 and 16:00. The exhibition runs until May 11th

The Long Apartment Block in Upper Breiðholt
All Week — National Museum Of Iceland

Spanish artist David Barreiro chose a specific apartment in Reykjavík’s neighbourhood of Breiðhólt to document the experiences of immigrants settling in Iceland. With a series of photographs of the building and the apartments, Barreiro candidly depicts the lives of individuals who’ve come and gone, leaving their unique mark on the place along the years. This exhibition runs until May 27th. AD

Activities:

GKR
Wednesday 28th — 22:00 — Tivoli

After dedicating some time to creating new materials, Iceland’s quirkiest and most charming rapper is now back with a brand new banger. Produced by Ian Boom, “Nei Takk” mixes melodic bells with a hard-hitting bass-driven beat reminiscent of east European trap music. Make sure to stop by his show on Wednesday night for an intense musical journey. SP
