Collection Highlights spring 2010
Louisiana's vast collection of modern art is presented in new ways each season. During spring 2010 a selection of popular collection highlights -- dubbed a ‘summit meeting’ of Louisiana icons -- could be seen in the West Wing.
On display in the West Wing were some of the finest works owned by the museum – classics by artists such as Picasso, Dubuffet, Kandinsky, Picabia and Pollock, supplemented by a selection of drawings. More recent Louisiana favourites were also on view such as Louise Bourgeois’ Spider Couple, Juan Muñoz’s semi-circle of small, Chinese figures, Thomas Demand’s Clearing and Mario Merz’s Igloo.
The Louisiana Cinema showed the 1997 video work Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y by Johan Groimonprez, in which a sampling of historical film clips recounts the history of hijacking airplanes as a TV-show with commercial breaks.
