The Memorial Trust for Barrister L. Zeuthen and the Gallery
The Memorial Trust for Barrister L. Zeuthen supports endeavours within science and art with a major significance to Danish society. In 2010 the Trust joined other foundations and sponsors in supporting the extensive exhibition Bjørn Nørgaard. Re-modelling the World. In 2013 the Trust supports the museum’s spring exhibition Flowers and World Views.
Flowers and World Views
In 2013 the SMK presents the exhibition Flowers and World Views. Taking its point of departure in the Gottorfer Codex, an album of flower paintings, the exhibition shows how 17th and 18th century artists translated flowers into pictures. The Gottorfer Codex is a unique collection comprising a total of four volumes, all hailing from the library at Gottorf Castle. The work consists entirely of paintings of flowers, shrubs, and fruit and is one of the museum’s highlights. The museum is grateful to The Memorial Trust for Barrister L. Zeuthen for being amongst the partners enabling us to welcome visitors to an exhibition of floral splendour.
Bjørn Nørgaard. Re-modelling the World
Bjørn Nørgaard is an uncompromising artist who has been leaving his remarkable signature and stamp on Danish art since the 1960s. As part of the experimental art scene, he radically and provocatively challenged conceptions about art and its relationship with institutions and reality.
For the first time, in 2010 the National Gallery of Denmark gave the public the chance to experience a collective profile of Bjørn Nørgaard’s multifaceted art works from the 1960s through to today. And it is largely thanks to the Memorial Trust for Barrister L. Zeuthen and others that the Gallery presented this unique retrospective view of sculpture, installations, actions, film and graphics.
