Description

Published on the occasion of the exhibition at ARKEN, 13 June 2015 to 17 January 2016.

Triangular noses and almond eyes surrounded by intricate curlicues and intense colours. For some people Bjørn Wiinblad evokes memories of tiled tables and mantelpieces, for others his colourful flourishes and luxuriant forms are the essence of retro-cool. ARKEN Museum of Modern Art presents the most comprehensive exhibition ever of this unique figure in Danish art, design and artist-craftsmanship.

The wide-ranging artist Bjørn Wiinblad (1918-2006) was a phenomenal image-maker and imaginative storyteller. Including drawings, posters, gouaches, one-off ceramics, stage design and huge tapestries, the exhibition shows new and surprising perspectives on a Wiinblad, who we all know, and demonstrates a modern wide-ranging artist, who was much more than plaques.
