Gardar Eide Einarsson’s work combines the rebellious streak of punk-rock antics with art historical references that recall Frank Stella, Kasimir Malevich and Roy Lichtenstein. His text-based works, including wall vinyls, silkscreens and lightboxes, offer an often politicized view of contemporary society and an authoritative claim on appropriation that brings attention to the idea of authorship that has concerned postmodernist thought since Foucault’s proclamation of “the death of the author.”

Gardar Eide Einarsson has had solo shows in New York (Team Gallery), Oslo, Berlin, Köln, Paris and Copenhagen. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions throughout the U.S. and Europe. He has been the subject of solo shows at the Modern Art Museum, Fort Worth, TX; the Kunstverein in Frankfurt, Germany; and the Centre d’Art Contemporain in Geneva. A large exhibition will run at the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo, Norway, from May 6th through August 29th, 2010. A catalogue will accompany this survey show which will then travel throughout the Nordic countries.
