A stylish abstract exhibition poster advertising an exhibition with works by Claes Oldenburg.
Claes Oldenburg (1929) is an American sculptor famous for his public art installations typically featuring large replicas of everyday objects (like a huge ice cream on the top of a building and huge shuttlecocks in front of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City. In one way Oldenburg is mainly known for his pop art installations but when you look at this poster you discover that this artist has many layers. -Does it look like a man with a paper bag on his head?
Louisiana (Danish Museum of Modern Art) is located in Humlebæk north of Copenhagen, Denmark. The museum was opened its doors in 1958 and with its approximately 600,000 annual visitors, is one of Denmark's most visited museums and among the ten most visited tourist attractions. Louisiana is a collection of contemporary art, but also an interaction between art, architecture and landscape.
Louisiana got his name from court master Alexander Brun, who built a villa on the site in 1855. The villa's name is probably inspired by the three women he married - all three were named Louise. The founder of Louisiana chose to keep the name from the country house he subsequently transformed into a museum. The villa is now a part of the museum.
