Episode 3: In the studio with Guðjón Ketilsson

Guðjón Ketilsson is the current recipient of the Artist of the Year award from the Icelandic Art Prize. In this episode we meet him in the studio in downtown Reykjavík. We discuss early memories of art, his first solo exhibition, school abroad and specific works that span his over thirty-year practice. Guðjón’s experience of emerging into an art scene with the raw presence of the avant-garde gives inside perspective into a specific and vibrant time in Icelandic art. Created and produced by the Icelandic Art Centre, Out There brings host Becky Forsythe in conversation with artists, curators and art professionals.
