Hreinn Friðfinnsson: For the Time Being

The Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) at Miami Dade College (MDC) presents, For the Time Being, the first American museum exhibition of the influential work of Hreinn Fridfinnsson. Spanning six decades, the survey highlights the artist’s use of minimal gestures to transform everyday materials into poetic, allusive, and revelatory works of art. Hreinn Fridfinnsson: For the Time Being is on view from Nov. 6, 2021, through May 1, 2022.

Fridfinnsson’s art is often recursive and contingent, casting a wide net of references, often to others of the artist’s works, even if decades old, and dependent on vagaries of atmosphere and perception for its effect. Consequently, most of his major exhibitions, including this one at MOAD, gather works from across the multiple decades of his career, without regard for chronology or ideas of artistic development. For the Time Being, as the title intimates, marks a provisional summation of the artist’s achievement, less a traditional retrospective than an assembly of instantiations of his unique sensibility.
