Two modernist giants take over Louisiana this winter

Louisiana, Northern Zealand’s extraordinarily beautifully located museum of modern art,

is entering the new year with exhibitions that explore new territory and shed light on unanswered questions.

Founded in 1958, Louisiana today holds one of Scandinavia’s largest and mostvisited collections of modern art.

Last year, more than 600,000 visitors enjoyed the museum’s beautiful 19th century villa, Two modernist

sculpture garden, spectacular views of Øresund and innovative special exhibitions.

This winter, fans of modern art are treated to two significant exhibitions: ARCTIC and JORN & POLLOCK – Revolutionary Roads.

The latter provides a world-premiere confrontation between two giants of modern post-war painting,

the American legend Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) and Danish Asger Jorn (1914-1973), Two modernist

who was among the period’s most important European artists.

With a selection of 135 paintings, drawings and prints, the exhibition offers a take on the previously unresolved

questions of whether the two artists shared artistic means and ends.

However, though some of Jorn’s and Pollock’s works are almost indistinguishable in style,

the exhibition is, according to curator Ander Kold, not about the two artists being identical – quite the contrary.

“Jorn and Pollock offer different versions of the routes that the revolution in painting could take,

and often what looks identical is really fundamentally different.”
