The 1960s and 1970s were an era in which all aspects of human existence were reassessed. Art included. The SMK’s special spring exhibition of 2015 focuses on experimental art created between 1965 and 1975, exploring how art met and intersected with popular culture, everyday life, fashion, sexual liberation, and the new women’s movement. The artists featured include Per Kirkeby, Poul Gernes, Jørgen Leth, Ursula Reuter Christiansen, Bjørn Nørgaard, Lene Adler Petersen, Jytte Rex, Kirsten Justesen and others.
With the exhibition Per Kirkeby – The True Image, HEART wants to breathe new life into the story about the avant-garde in Herning. Featuring more than 94 paintings, Masonites, and sculptures from 1963-1990, HEART will be undertaking a significant Kirkeby exhibition based on the vigorous art milieu unfolding on these moors half a century ago.
