Solander 250: Bréf frá Íslandi og Paradise Lost – Daniel Solander‘s Legacy

The exhibition Solander 250: A Letter From Iceland is held in Safnahúsið on July 15th - August 15th 2023 in remembrance of one of the first foreign scientific expeditions to Iceland, in 1772. On this journey was one of Carl von Linné‘s apostles, the Swedish natural scientist Daniel Solander. Among the things Solander and his fellow travellers recorded in Iceland were nature, culture, traditions, and clothing. Ten Icelandic graphic-artists will interpret these events from 1772 and how the nation and the country have changed since then.

Simultaneously the exhibition Paradise Lost - Daniel Solander’s Legacy will be opened. Solander was the main botanist on the HMS Endeavor on the first European expedition to Australia. The exhibition has already been set up in New Zealand, Australia, and Sweden. The two exhibitions thus form a unique dialogue between the Arctic and the Pacific through Daniel Solander’s travels. The two exhibitions are the collaborative project of the Swedish embassy in Iceland and the Icelandic Printmakers Association.
