Laura Lima – The Naked Magician

Laura Lima: The Naked Magician

4 June - 18 October 2015

Flea market finds, textiles, instruments, books, bric-a-brac and bits and bobs from near and far made up the large, immersive installation created by Laura Lima for the x-rummet venue at the SMK. Inside the exhibition, you would find “The Naked Magician” pottering about, constantly creating new objects and making changes to the many materials found there.

The exhibition What's Happening?

What's Happening?

26 March – 2 August 2015

The 1960s and 1970s were an era in which all aspects of human existence were reassessed. Art included. The SMK’s special spring exhibition of 2015 focused on experimental art created between 1965 and 1975, exploring how art met and intersected with popular culture, everyday life, fashion, sexual liberation, and the new women’s movement. The artists featured included Per Kirkeby, Jørgen Leth, Ursula Reuter Christiansen, Bjørn Nørgaard, Lene Adler Petersen, Jytte Rex, Kirsten Justesen and others.

What makes a home?

What makes a home?

11 October - 26 July 2015

We sleep, wake up, brush our teeth, eat, play, and live in our homes. But what really makes a home? And what does it mean to feel at home somewhere?

A exhibition for children invited children and grown-ups to take a closer look at what ‘home’ means in 2014.

Might and Glory

Might and Glory. Dürer in the Emperor’s Service

5 March – 21 June 2015

Symbols of power, tales of war, beautiful ornaments, and enigmatic fabulous beasts all mingle happily side by side in Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer’s quite literally largest-ever masterpiece, The Arch of Honour of Maximilian I from 1515. The exhibition invited you to take an in-depth look at this work, which is one of the absolute highlights of 16th century graphic art.
