Denice Günstein: En face
Konstakademien
Opening 19 February – 3 May 2015
 
Photographer Denise Günstein was invited to create an art project in the empty space within the Nationalmuseum building while it was closed for renovation. The resulting photographs look at the ambiguity of time. One is uncertain whether a photograph has been taken from the past, present or future. The empty museum plays the background for her images. Her practice attempts to uphold romanticism in a period where she believes the romantic is lacking. Her images attempt to tell stories, create a Mise-en-scène and possess structures that are similar to storytelling. Fifty five works are on display which include eighteen photographs and one video work from her new suite.

Melgaard + Munch
The Munch Museum
Opening 21 January – 12 April 2015
 
How can the work of Edvard Munch be seen from new and contemporary contexts? This is one of the key questions this exhibition aims at addressing. Munch’s work is here seen in relation to the work of Bjarne Melgaard’s. Some cosmetic correlations can be drawn from the expressive brushwork in Melgaard’s paintings as well as motifs that Munch visited but recontextualised through Melgaard’s own practice. Themes about sexuality, death, alienation and gender are experiences that both artists deal with but in the background of their own time and society. You will see works of both Munch and Melgaard side by side in an exhibition which explores how in differing ways both artists work around similar romantic and dystopian assessment of modern civilisation

Potential Architecture
Ambika P3
Opening 11 March – 19 April 2015
 
Art and architecture is merged in this exhibition which presents four site-specific commissions by international artists and architects Alexander Brodsky, Sean Griffiths, Joar Nango and Apolonija Šušterŝič. The exceptional evolution of cities and towns is explored through the analysis of the material aspects of living environments. Using a wide range of mediums, materials and artistic disciplines such as recycling, craft, low-tech processes, performance, video sculpture and installation, this fascinating international exhibition looks at the need for a heightened response to how communities evolve and how social spaces are used and buildings made.

The Provoke Era: Japanese Photography from the Collection of SFMOMA
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Opening 28 February – 16 May 2015
 
This exhibition brings you the avant-garde photography that was emerging out of Tokyo in the 1960’s and 1970’s. The stormy period that followed World War II positioned a generation of Japanese photographers responding to the social upheaval of their time to produce a visual language called ‘Rough, Blurred, and Out of Focus’. The SFMOMA has been continually acquiring the work of many internationally recognised Japanese artists, collecting one of the most preeminent selection of photography of its kind. During its current renovation, SFMOMA has temporarily moved to a site in LA within the California Museum of Photography. Address below.
