Michael Kvium – artworks from the collection

The exhibition Michael Kvium shows works from Horsens Kunstmuseums big collection of artworks by the danish artist Michael Kvium(born 1955).

Kvium’s works are seeking the corners of our culture and staging the gloomy and macabre, the moral and physical decay. His visual universe deals with the world that we live in and the dark aspects of our existence. His approach is uncompromising, for which reason his works often awake both fascination and disgust.

Installation from 34 Years – 34 Works

34 Years – 34 Works

9 February – 22 May 2018
Horsens Art Museum has built a large and significant collection of experimental contemporary art since the museum began its present life in Pavillon Lunden back in 1984. With the exhibition ’34 years – 34 works’ the museum focuses on the collection by presenting a work from each year of the period 1984 – 2017. Normally, the museum’s staff selects the works in connection with the museum’s exhibitions, but in 34 years – 34 works, the museum has invited 34 people from Horsens to select the works for the exhibition.
The museum’s collection contains over 2600 works by artists such as Nina Sten Knudsen, Michael Kvium, Christian Lemmerz, Lars Nørgård, Erik A. Frandsen, Cathrine Raben Davidsen, Nikoline Liv Andersen, Rose Eken, Emil Westman Hertz, Ib Braase, Bjørn Nørgaard, Gudrun Hasle, Dorte Dalin and many more.

The exhibition 34 years – 34 works should therefore be seen as an entrance to  Horsens Art Museum’s large collection, seen with new eyes. In connection with the exhibition, it has been possible for the participants to choose between painting, sculpture and installation.

The 34 participants from Horsens are:
