We have joined forces with CPH:DOX to commission three works created by artists and filmmakers working in close collaboration.
Cross-pollination between art and film has always been of great importance to experimental art and the art cinema genre alike. Now, this field appears to have been rediscovered by younger filmmakers and artists collaborating to produce new works.
Woodcuts - from Dürer to Tal R
16 April - 4 September 2011. The Royal Collection of Graphic Art
The exhibition shows selected highlights from the history of woodcut and focuses on those times when woodcut played a central part on the art scene, i.e. the 16th century and the late 19th century. Many contemporary artists also use the woodcut technique today. Tal R is one of them.
You can follow the restoration of three Danish masterpieces of Nicolai Alidgaard (1743-1809) in an open studio at the museum. Here museum visitors can watch the works undergo their gradual transformation. Regular information updates will follow both at the museum and on this website.
Every Wednesday at 3 p.m., conservators will tell visitors about their work and progress.

The multi-talented artist has, however, long kept this lesser-known aspect of his work to himself; only over the course of the last three years has he appeared in public as a painter, exhibiting watercolours and drawings. This exhibition presents Bob Dylan's large-scale paintings for the first time ever.

The exhibition "Hip Hip Hurrah” marked Danh Vo’s first solo representation in Denmark. The festive title applied to the displayed works deliberately played with – and challenged – the most basic and simple definitions of identity and the personal. The exhibit comprised seven works, six of which were all-new
