My Own Private Iceland #4

This is the fourth in a series of posts imagining what my scheduled trip to Iceland would have been like…

Some afternoon free time to spend exploring Listasafn Reykjavíkur (Hafnarhus).

It is in the old customs house, commerce had out-grown its original function. When I was here in 2000 it was being converted. It usually features a gallery of Iceland’s Picasso/Warhol/Lichtenstein mash-up artist, Erró. His migraine-inducing collage paintings are a compendium of modern pop art and culture. He shows no sign of slowing down at age 87.  Once considered the bad-boy of the Icelandic art world his work, for better or worse, has been enshrined in that holy-of-holies—the Keflavík International airport!
