Upcoming exhibitions

5.2.2015 to 25.5.2015
A single work in the bustle of thousands captivated viewers at the Venice Biennale in 2013: the Irish Pavilion, which was the setting for the artist Richard Mosse’s frightening and uncomfortable video work The Enclave about the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
12.3.2015 to 21.6.2015
Jeff Wall (born in 1946) is the master of modern photography. Many contemporary painters and photographers are indebted to this artist from Vancouver who prepares every single image with the same care as if it were a theater piece developing in several acts.
Louisiana On Paper
19.3.2015 to 21.6.2015
Once again it is time for Hockney at Louisiana, this time in the Louisiana on Paper series with the artist’s striking drawings of the landscape of Yorkshire, where he was born.

17.9.2015 to 24.1.2016
Within a few years, Yayoi Kusama (born 1929) has become the darling of Louisiana’s guests because of her Gleaming Lights of the Souls installation at the museum – a mirror-lined room with hundreds of lamps in various colours that give the viewer a cosmic sensation of being in an infinite space.
Louisiana On Paper

In 2009, Louisiana held an extremely well-attended exhibition of paintings by the British artist Lucian Freud (1922-2011).
