Jay Gard 'Gabriele' solo exhibition at Museum Gunzenhauser 30 March - 28 July 2019
Gabriele – the title of Jay Gard's first museum solo exhibition: Behind the woman's name lies hidden, not a former romance, but pragmatism and a concept: Jay Gard named his work after his subject – a painting by Gabriele Münter. The starting point of the exhibition is Gabriele Münter’s painting Herbstliches Blumenstillleben from around 1912, which also forms part of the museum collection. Jay Gard dissects the painting into individual colored parts and reassembles them – this time in his own formal language, which is characterized by color circles, objects, and large-format sculptures. Carefully placed brush strokes are transformed into monochrome color surfaces, organic elements are transmuted into geometric forms and the once two-dimensional image becomes a spatial object. In the exhibition, Jay Gard developed an analytical way to deal with perception and color in relation to a work of art history; translating it into a work of the present. This turns a small painting into an entire exhibition.
Marie Kølbæk Iversen participates in 'The Moon' showing at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art & Henie Onstad Kunstsenter 13 september 2018 - 19 May 2019
From painting to virtual reality, superstition to science, myths to missions, fantasies to space colonies, join Louisiana on a trip to the Moon – into space and into ourselves. ARTnews has already called THE MOON the most intriguing show of the season.
This large-scale exhibition at Louisiana highlights the role, the importance and the fascinating power of the Moon. The exhibition presents more than 200 works and objects—and show how the round white disc is reflected in our art and cultural history. From Galileo's moon map to Norman Foster's plans for 3D-printed moon bases.
The exhibition mixes art, film, music, literature, architecture, cultural history, design and natural science into a vibrant and diverse portrait of our closest neighbor in the sky. We encounter the Moon as a fundamental symbol and as a goal of romantic and artistic longings, scientific inquiry, existential issues—and the urge for political expansion.
With this exhibition, Louisiana commemorates the imminent 50th anniversary of man's first steps on the Moon and also calls attention to a strong and renewed interest in the Moon both in art and as a springboard for a new Space Race with all its strategic and economic implications.
The exhibition is supported by Aage & Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond and is organized by Louisiana in collaboration with Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Oslo.
Henrik Olai Kaarstein participates in 'Sun and Spring in January' at Astrup Fearnley Museum 25 February - 5 May
In this exhibition, Astrup Fearnley Museet focuses on a new generation of Norwegian contemporary artists who represent a great diversity of conceptual premises and visual expressions.
In addition to the artists, the project presents a new generation of Norwegian art writers, as well as drawing attention to the art collector as a constructive part of the Norwegian contemporary art scene. A unique link is made between them; Six young artists are connected to a respective art writer and art collector. The trios create a framework for the project that forms the basis for an interesting and important dialogue between artists, writers and collectors.
The exhibition is a collaboration between Astrup Fearnley Museet and Talent Norge (Norwegian Talents). The museum has been responsible for the curating and the organisation of the exhibition, while the artists and critics received generous financial support from Talent Norge.
In the exhibition we have chosen to highlight the diversity that characterises the Norwegian art scene, as represented by the following artists: Miriam Hansen, Johanne Hestvold, Anders Holen, Henrik Olai Kaarstein, Mercedes Mühleisen and Constance Tenvik.
