Edgy contemporary art galleries such as those in the Marshall House showcase emerging and internationally famous Icelandic artists. Reykjavík also presents the chance to see Icelandic cinema with English subtitles. Or, wander the streets photographing creative graffiti and public art installations, like the ever-popular seaside Sun Voyager sculpture, which changes guises along with the light.
