This autumn, children and families are invited to explore a special exhibition created by Pakistani artist Aisha Khalid. Inspired by Islamic mysticism, known as Sufism, she focuses on controversial political messages through detailed, poetic miniature patterns and sensuous works made out of textiles and embroidery. In this exhibition we will examine how familiar elements associated with safety, home and domesticity can be transformed in Khalid’s imagery, taking on new – and very different – meaning.
Exhibition period: 13 October 2016 – 30 December 2017
This exhibition constitutes the Danish-born artist Sergej Jensen’s first solo show at a Danish museum. Sergej Jensen is known for taking an unconventional approach to painting.
He focuses on materials and their aesthetic potential. His pictures often consist of found textiles that have been sown together, sometimes featuring no paintwork at all, at other times bearing traces of paint or motifs from art history.

Japanese art had a transformative impact on Nordic art during the period 1875–1918. From exotic geishas and startling depictions of nature to stylised and rarefied aesthetics.
The inspiration from Japan was particularly evident in artists such as Edvard Munch, Carl Larsson, Helene Schjerfbeck, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Anna Ancher and L.A. Ring.
