The Corridor is an artist-run exhibition space founded by artist Helgi Þorgils Friðjónsson in 1979, and has always been housed in Helgi Þorgils‘ home. In 2020 the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the Corridor was marked with an exhibition of the works of the foreign artists whose art had been exhibited at the Corridor over the years. After the anniversary year Helgi Þorgils Friðjónsson and his wife Rakel Halldórsdóttir presented the works from the show to the National Gallery of Iceland: a total of 117 pieces by 84 artists from 22 countries, which are now on display at the National Gallery. This generous gift is a valuable addition to the Corridor’s collection, and important documentation of the contribution of the Corridor to the art scene in Iceland over the past four decades.

The composer Sævar Jóhannsson and string trio performes at the opening.
