The Anglo-Danish Society

Exhibition of Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby & Tal R

When:  23 January to 23 March 2019

Where: Victoria Miro, 14 St George Street, London W1S 1FE

This exhibition will be celebrating three generations of internationally acclaimed Danish artists: Asger Jorn (1914–1973); Per Kirkeby (1938–2018); and Tal R (born 1967).

Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby and Tal R are great artist-experimenters. Danish by birth or residence, each has looked simultaneously to Denmark and outwards to international movements and tendencies. The paintings reveal a shared interest in the physical properties and expressive potential of their medium along with a deep understanding of its history and traditions. As much as they have in common, the works by these three artists also show their wide-ranging interests ­– including but by no means limited to Nordic mythology (Jorn), geology (Kirkeby) and the liminal space of sleep (Tal R).
