Friends of AFSMK are invited to join us for a special tour of the Danh Vo exhibition at Statens Museum for Kunst.
The Danish-Vietnamese artist Danh Vo is one of Denmark’s most internationally acclaimed contemporary artists. In the retrospective exhibition Take My Breath Away, produced in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Danh Vo presents his poetic and political practice through themes such as colonialism, migration, religion, cultural history, identity and artistic copyright.
Vo’s ideas can be found through the museum – from Kafeteria (the museum café that Vo helped decorate), over plaster cast, sculptures in the Sculpture Street – to specifically designed cushions on the museum’s marble stair case. The exhibition comes to Statens Museum for Kunst directly from Guggenheim in New York.
When: Wednesday 17th October at 5pm
Where: SMK – Statens Museum for Kunst, Sølvgade 48-50, Copenhagen
