DENMARK.- Over the course of 2011 and 2012, the Statens Museum for Kunst, National Gallery of Denmark’s extensive collections of art will be restaged and presented in three separate stages. On 28 May 2011 we will open the new section on “Danish and Nordic Art 1750-1900". On 26 November 2011 this will be followed by “European Art 1300-1800". Finally, “Danish and International Art after 1900” will open in the spring of 2012. The new displays present new art historical readings of the collections and constitute an upgrade of the Gallery’s audience services that includes new analogue and digital offerings. The exhibition spaces, which comprise approximately 6,700 m, will be renovated, and in total the three separate displays will present around 1,500 works of art to the public. The three new displays will constitute independent sections with largely separate profiles – they will appear as three museums in one, each making full use of the unique qualities and potential of their particular collections.

From 28 May 2011 Danish and Nordic Art 1750-1900
From the birth of Danish painting through the famed artists of the Danish Golden Age to the earliest dawn of Modernism, this section outlines the major trends in Danish and Nordic art through 150 years. The presentation follows a chronological structure studded with particular focus points dedicated to individual artists of particular importance, to particular themes, or to some of the more obscure and forgotten aspects of Danish art history.

From 26 November 2011 European Art 1300-1800
The oldest part of the Gallery’s collections comprise Western European art and features particularly important examples of Dutch, Flemish, Italian, French, and German art. The collection’s unique qualities and wide-ranging scope in terms of periods – from Late Gothic to Rococo – is reflected in the presentation’s chronological approach. Featuring works by e.g. Mantegna, Titian, Cranach, El Greco, Rubens, and Rembrandt the display will call attention to the collection’s roots in the royal collections of the past and accentuate the diversity of artistic modes of expression as showcased in painting, sculpture, art on paper, and miniatures.

The Royal Collection of Graphic Art

16 April – 21 August 2011 Woodcuts. From Drer to Tal R
Featuring major works from medieval times to the present day, by artists spanning the ages from Drer, Cranach, and Titian through Gauguin, Kandinsky, Nolde, and Jorn to all-new works by Tal R, this exhibition provides a comprehensive introduction to the woodcut technique and the many different functions it has fulfilled over the course of history. As a medium it laid down one of the cornerstones of our present-day information society, and in spite of the rapid emergence of new media the woodcut technique has survived and continues to prompt artistic experimentation.

17 September 2011 – 19 February 2012 Toulouse-Lautrec Human Comedy
The Gallery’s major autumn exhibition about Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) has a wide scope. In addition to drawings and prints the exhibition also features a selection of the artist’s paintings and posters, including a number of prominent loans from collections abroad. The exhibition presents a sharply focused picture of an artist who came of noble stock, was crippled as a child, and grew up to be an epoch-defining chronicler of Parisian city life. In a new, innovative visual style Toulouse-Lautrec depicted theatres, circuses, brothels, cafs, and music halls – a world where city dwellers lived out their desires across boundaries of gender and class.

In 2011 x-rummet will continue to provide a setting for two exhibitions featuring projects by young, influential artists who will create works specifically for this Gallery setting. The ambition behind x-rummet is to present Danish audiences with up-and-coming Danish artists whose works have not yet been presented on a major scale in Denmark and to introduce significant artists from abroad on the Danish art scene.
