Coming exhibitions 2013
YOKO ONO – HALF-A-WIND SHOW
7 June – 29 September 2013
Yoko Ono is one of the most prominent artists of our time. In 2013 she will be 80, and to mark the occasion Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is showing a major retrospective exhibition with a selection of the artists characteristic works, demonstrating the diversity of media and disciplines in Yoko Onos artistic production, and illustrating the central themes with which Yoko Ono continues to work vitally in her lifelong oeuvre.
The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is located in northern Zealand with a panoramic view across the Øresund. The museum frames the sculpture park facing the sea and the interaction between art, nature and the museum architecture is quite unique.
Louisiana is an international museum with a considerable collection of modern art. The museums permanent collection includes more than 3000 works and is one of the largest in Scandinavia. It takes its point of departure in the period after 1945 including artists like Picasso, Giacometti, Dubuffet, Yves Klein, Andy Warhol, Rauschenberg, Henry Moore, Louise Bourgeois, Philip Guston, Morris Louis, Jorn, Baselitz, Polke, Kiefer, and Per Kirkeby.
Every year Louisiana offers 4-6 temporary exhibitions, presenting both great modernist artists and the latest international contemporary art in the series Louisiana Contemporary. Throughout the years the museum has persisted in taking the international view as a premise for its exhibitions and Louisianas status implies that the museum is able to attract future exhibitions and artists of a standard available to only very few Scandinavian museums.
Louisianas exhibition programme has always covered a wide range primarily focusing on the interaction between the different art forms. Louisiana therefore has a long standing tradition of culture-historical exhibitions and of presenting large, international photo, design and architecture shows. The exhibition activities and the development of the collection are closely linked, and thus the exhibitions often leave their mark on the collection thanks to acquisitions and donations.
