40 years with Horsens Art Museum
The exhibitions we can currently see at Horsens Art Museum tie together the past, the present and a glimpse of the future: 1984 presents the majority of the works that were in Horsens Museum’s Art Department and which moved up to the new premises in the Lunden pavilion in 1984. 1984 -1985 The early years show the audience some of the very first acquisitions that were made for the collection after the museum became independent and which are the works that created the seed for the museum’s large collection of experimental contemporary art. The hanging with Troels Wörsel shows a broad section of the Horsens Art Museum’s collection of the artist.
Finally, the museum presents the collection display New acquisitions 2002-2023, which presents the latest acquisitions for the museum’s collection. Here it is possible to follow the great development that has taken place over the years. Here, the audience will also be greeted by works by the artists Lars Nørgård, Troels Wörsel and Bjørn Nørgaard, who can also be found all the way back to the museum’s beginnings. In connection with the newly acquired exhibition, it is also possible to experience a large number of works by the young generation such as Frederik Næblerød, Adam Christensen, Nina Nowak and Arvida Byström.
