In this diverse exhibition, new works by contemporary artists are presented especially with children and young people in mind. The works are all in the collection of the Reykjavík Art Museum. Presentation, mediation and education aims to open up the world of art as it appears today for younger audiences. Along with the exhibition, there is a rich program as well as digital dissemination. "Abrakadabra" is a word deriving from ancient languages that means: What I say becomes a reality. This is a magic word that describes how artists' ideas become works of art.
