Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is situated in Denmark on the North Sealand coast in a spacious, old park with a fine view across the sound of Sweden. Louisiana's collection of modern art has an international perspective and importance including all genres - emphasising painting and sculpture. The collection is shown partially in varying selected presentations.
Every year, the Louisiana Museum shows six to eight major exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, including classical masters of modern art as well as new and upcoming international artists. For these both solo and group exhibitions, the museum publishes catalogues in the Louisiana Revy series as well as special catalogues.
A Wealth of experiences
Louisiana is not merely an experience in modern and contemporary art, but a congenial reflection of the interplay between art, architecture and landscape. The park serves as an ideal setting for displaying the museum’s collection of modern sculptures. Similarly, the prominent museum buildings, constructed between 1958 and 1998, offer a fascinating background for the permanent collection of twentieth-century art.
The relaxing atmosphere, the museum’s permanent collection, changing exhibitions of art, films, concerts, the children’s wing, the café service indoors and outdoors, the museum shop with its large selection of books, art reproductions, graphics, posters, postcards, design and classical CDs - all combine in making Louisiana a pleasure to visit.
