New exhibition featuring Asger Jorn

The SMK's large-scale exhibition Asger Jorn – Restless Rebel opens on 28 February. With this major event the SMK celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Asger Jorn.

The approximately 200 works of art on display offer insight into a rare and unique character within Danish art. The exhibition includes all of Jorn’s many fields of interest, showing examples of his many experiments with sculpture, paintings, prints, ceramics, and literary texts.

Absolute masterpieces and rarely seen gems

At the exhibition you can see a wide range of Jorn’s masterpieces, including Stalingrad, The Non-Place, or the Mad Laugh of Courage, together with several rarely exhibited works from private collections.

The exhibition was created in co-operation with Museum Jorn in Silkeborg, where the exhibition Expo Jorn – Art is a Festival is on from 4 March to 14 September 2014.
