A Woman's Place...

Arc Hall 19.6-31.12.2015

The exhibition A Woman's Place... examines the working lives of Icelandic women from 1915 to 2015.

A hundred years after women gained the right to vote, and to be candidates, in parliamentary elections, we look ack, and ask: What have women in Iceland been doing for the past century? How hafve their circumstances changed - and why?

And what is a woman's place, after all?

The cover is inspired by Deluxe and delightful, 1979 by artist Ragnheiður Jónsdóttir. Photo of a woman by Hjálmar Bárðarson, designer Ármann Agnarsson.
