Tan Ping & Bjørn Nørgaard –
a dialogue exhibition at Horsens Art Museum
Through the last couple of years Horsens Art Museum has worked on a dialogue exhibition with the Chinese artist Tan Ping and the Danish sculptor Bjørn Nørgaard.
The exhibition ‘Recycling Art’ in 2010 was Bjørn Nørgaard’s latest presentation at Horsens Art Museum. The museum’s collection includes several works by Bjørn Nørgaard. Therefore, the museum sees it as a natural course by now to present Bjørn Nørgaard again – and this time along with his colleague and conversational partner Tan Ping.
Tan Ping is mainly a painter and graphic artist, whereas Bjørn Nørgaard works as a sculptor. Thus, it is not a case of artistic kinship as such, but a dialogue regarding artistic questions. Horsens Art Museum considers it important to present this dialogue, and therefore acts as a platform for the meeting of the two artists and their worlds.
The exhibition fills most of the museum’s exhibition space and contains an interplay between installation, sculpture and painting.
In continuation of the exhibition the museum will publish a catalogue presenting the two artists and the dialogue exhibition.
The exhibition is on show from September 9, 2017 to January 14, 2018.

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.
