Visit Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson Exhibition at Weisman Museum of Art

Pepperdine University’s Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art will have on display an exhibition of artwork by Cleveland-based artist Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson from August 26 to December 10, 2023, her first west coast exhibition and first solo museum show in the United States in nearly a decade. A display of Jónsson’s largest and most labor-intensive paintings yet, Infinite Space, Sublime Horizons features a unique blend of painting and weaving presented in large-scale paintings on a loom alongside smaller paintings, drawings, and watercolors. 

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog designed by Content Object Studio, with texts by Weisman Museum of Art director Andrea Gyorody, art historian Jenni Sorkin, and curator Cathleen Chaffee. The catalog is available for purchase at the museum. Following its showing at the Weisman, the exhibition will travel to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte, North Carolina, in February 2024.
