MUSEUM MAGASIN 3 – presentations from the collection
Curator: David Neuman
24 September, 2011 – June 2012

Premiere of Museum Magasin 3.
Starting in Autumn 2011, Magasin 3 will dedicate two galleries to annual exhibitions drawn from the permanent collection. These presentations will provide the opportunity for recollections and reflections upon artists that Magasin 3 has followed over the years.

First up is a meeting between two celebrated Danish artists: Per Kirkeby and Tal R. Both have previously been featured in solo exhibitions at Magasin 3, yet this new context places paintings and sculptures by each artist side-by-side – an encounter that lends itself to visual rapture and existential analysis.

The second gallery will present a group of works by Cosima von Bonin, a Cologne-based artist. In her imagery, we encounter creatures and objects that seem to have escaped from a kindergarten. Larger than life they sit perfectly poised as if at the beach or on the ocean floor upending all preconceptions. Although Cosima von Bonin has been included in group shows at Magasin 3, this is the first solo presentation of her works, and includes an exciting new acquisition.

Museum Magasin 3 exhibitions are created by the curators at Magasin 3. These first presentations are curated by museum director David Neuman assisted by Bronwyn Griffith, Assistant Curator of Collection Research.
