Focus on Danish and International Art after 1900
View a selection of SMK highlights in an exhibition with special focus on modern and contemporary art.
Explore Expressionism, Surrealism, political art and experimental art in an exhibition of modern and contemporary works that forges links across different periods.
Politics, geometry and un-realities
FOCUS ON – Danish and International Art after 1900 puts particular emphasis on Danish art as it addresses six overall themes: Painterly Visions, The Political Body, Geometry and Construction, Figure and Expressivity, Un-Realities, and Idea and Material.
In the exhibition you can experience art works by Kirsten Justesen, Per Kirkeby, Wilhelm Freddie, Michael Kvium, Asger Jorn and Tal R.
The works on display were created during different historical periods and on the basis of different artistic points of departure, but the artists all shared an interest in similar subjects and aesthetic devices – or took identical approaches to materials and compositions. Thus, the exhibition allows us to explore fundamental themes and aesthetic approaches that have interested artists from 1900 to the present day.
FOCUS ON – Danish and International Art after 1900 is on display from 17. januar – maj 2017.
Highlights from the permanent collection
In the spring 2017 the permanent exhibition Danish and International Art after 1900 will be closed due to the technical installations. Instead, you can explore a selection of modern and contemporary art from the permanent exhibition in FOCUS ON – Danish and International Art after 1900
