Faurschou Foundation is pleased to present the exhibition, Recent Acquisitions, which introduces a selection of the newly acquired artworks from its collection. Featuring works by Elmgreen & Dragset, Tracey Emin, Anselm Kiefer, Paul McCarthy, Bjarne Melgaard and Ai Weiwei, Recent Acquisitions provides an insight into Faurschou Foundation’s diverse art genre.
Since it first opened its doors in Copenhagen’s North Harbour with an explosive solo exhibition of Cai Guo-Qiang in September 2012, Faurschou Foundation has presented both group and solo exhibitions to Copenhagen, with works by some of the most important artists of our time, such as Louise Bourgeois, Ai Weiwei, Liu Xiaodong, Shirin Neshat, Christian Lemmerz, Mona Hatoum and Santiago Sierra.
The artworks presented in Recent Acquisitions highlight Faurschou Foundation’s interest in a wide variety of media, as they range from painting, sculptures, to assemblage, and, finally, light and sound installations.
