In 1949 George Orwell wrote the famous novel 1984. In November 1984 the new Horsens Art Museum opened its doors at the top of the hill in Caroline Amalie Lunden. Earlier on, the art collection of Horsens Art Museum had been at Horsens Museum since 1915. The goal of the new museum was to present the art collection in a new constellation.
With the exhibition 1984 – en samlingsophængning Horsens Art Museum presents artworks from the museum’s collection that has not been shown for many years. This is therefore a unique opportunity to see artworks from 1825 to the late 1960s that at one hand formed the fundament of the museum and also reflects upon how the museum has evolved since its new establishment in 1984.
The exhibition is open from Saturday the 6th of February to Monday the 5th of April 2021.
