For the first time, awards will be given for the Retrospective of the year and the group show of the year. The National Gallery of Iceland received an award for its extensive exhibition, Threads of Art, covering a 60-year period, from 1958 to 2018, with 60 works by 37 artists. The interesting and diverse selection of textile art from this period by curators Dagný Heiðdal and Harpa Þórsdóttir was particularly enlightening. The exhibition gave museum visitors an insight into the development of an art form that until recently was almost exclusively practiced by women and has until now not gotten the recognition it deserves.
