Daría Sól Andrews
Independent curator and art critic
Daría Sól Andrews works as an independent curator and art critic currently based in Reykjavík, Iceland. In 2021 she will attend the Whitney Independent Study Program as a Curatorial Fellow in New York. She holds an MA in Curating, Art Management, and Law from the University of Stockholm and a BA in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley.
Most recent curatorial projects include sound and video installation by Ingibjörg Friðriksdóttir “Quite the Situation” as part of the Reykjavik Arts Festival (2021), group exhibition “BLINDSPOT” at the Reykjavík City Library (2021), and the group exhibition “Norðrið” at LÁ Art Museum (2020). Further recent projects include group exhibition “Silent Spring” at Hafnarborg Museum (2020), “Latent Shadow” project series at Harbinger gallery (2020-2021), “Icelandic Meat Soup” at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography, alongside various curatorial projects in San Francisco, Reykjavik, and Stockholm.
In 2017 Daria founded her home gallery as curatorial director of Studio Sol, where she renovated a warehouse building and presents exhibitions in a living room, home-based setting. Daria aspires to create a place where life and art merge, to construct a space for experiencing intimacy and quietness, with art, yourself, and others. Her curatorial practice is inspired by ideas of rethinking how, where, and in what form, the exhibition concept can be manifested.
