An outdoor exhibition of illustrations by Linda Ólafsdóttir with words by Margrét Tryggvadóttir, from the book, Reykjavík barnanna (e. The Children’s Reykjavík). Reykjavík has undergone many changes over the years. When the first settlers arrived, Reykjavík, today the modern capital, was a landscape of untouched fields and nature. Reykjavík barnanna - Time travel Around the Capital, is the history of the city where the daily life of the people who built it at various times, is brought to life in words and pictures. Viewers can for example learn about the Viking village, the town that turned into a city, the harbour, the sewage system, the nature, animal life and the big fire. The exhibition is located in Pósthússtræti by Austurvöllur where Linda and Margrét will meet and greet guests on Reykjavík Culture Night, between 15-17 on August 21st. The exhibition is open for 6 weeks and is set up in collaboration with Reykjavík, UNESCO City of Literature, Reykjavík City Museum and Forlagið.
