SMK Fridays: Can art change the world?

Date: 17. apr. 2015
Time: 16:00 - 22:00
Price: Free

On 17 April we focus attention on the kind of art that involves itself directly in social issues. Explore art from the 1960s and 1970s in the exhibition What’s Happening?, meet the artists, and set up camp inside an art installation.

Camp out for a night

The artists Rikke Diemer and Kirsten Dufour have recreated the art installation The Camp right in the middle of our new exhibition What's Happening?. Meet the two artists and join the camp for the night.

Can art change the world?

Curator and writer Carl Martin Faurby asks the question: Can art truly change the world? In the company of SMK director Mikkel Bogh, artists Honza Hoeck, Rikke Diemer, Kirsten Dufour, Søren Bjørn, Jacob Jessen, and assistant professor and PhD in psychology Morten Nissen he explores art’s potential and opportunities for changing the world around us.

Molly Haslund draws giant circles

Using giant pairs of compasses, much bigger than herself, the artist Molly Haslund carries out her performance Circles in the Museum Garden. Over the course of the afternoon Haslund will cover the entire forecourt in giant circles. Grab a pair of compasses and join in.

ArtTalks and experimental films in the Cinema

Get a short, sharp shot of art when our guides focus on selected works within the exhibition What's Happening? The Cinema will screen experimental films from the late 1960s.

Street food, bar and artist-DJ

Kick back and relax with a beer and some street food – tonight, the menu is macrobiotic to match the overall theme. The evening will be concluded by a special artist-DJ, who will select groovy tracks to accompany the art.
