Special exhibitions (Louisiana.dk):

Det uerstattelige menneske, 23.11.23-1.4.24

With works by more than 60 artists, this large-scale, interdisciplinary exhibition seeks to define the phenomenon of creativity from a broad, humanistic perspective. What are the conditions for creativity in society today? And is there reason to fear that artificial intelligence will take over and surpass human creative abilities?

The exhibition The Irreplaceable Human – Conditions of Creativity in the Age of AI aims to create the foundation for a conversation about the role of creativity in our society – and thus also for a discussion about what is really valuable to us. The exhibition presents works by more than 60 artists – with the main emphasis on art from the past 20 years – combined with references to cultural history, science, and literature.

Bourgeois X Giacometti, 9.1.24-26.5.24

In the North Wing, Alberto Giacometti, whose works constitute a significant pillar of Louisiana's collection, has been joined for the first time by Louise Bourgeois – another of the 20th century's all-time great artists – and her iconic sculpture 'Spider Couple'.

Entirely exceptionally, the sculpture ‘Walking Man’ by Alberto Giacometti is on loan this spring, and in its usual place you will instead find the monumental ‘Spider Couple’ from 2003 by French-American Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010): a rather special meeting between two artists who are beacons of 20th-century art history, as well as of the Louisiana Collection. Giacometti and Bourgeois knew each other, and their art expresses a lifelong preoccupation with the human body and psyche, albeit in very different ways.

Nan Goldin - Memory Lost, 12.1.24-22.3.24

American photographer and activist Nan Goldin has just been named the world's most influential artist by Art Review Magazine. Currently you have the chance to revisit her latest masterpiece 'Memory Lost' in our West Wing Cinema.
