  • Very impressive. It was beyond my best expectation. Such a small dot in the vast North Atlantic yet nurture so many great artists.
  • Even if you're not a fan of modern art, the gallery is a must-see. Its relatively small permanent collection is exceptionally well presented. The Faroese art being quite young, the exhibition starts directly with interesting things (expressionism to abstract art). Make sure to see the Deep Blue, the room with stained glass and mirrors which create an illusion of profound abyss below your feet. Exceptional.
