3 new posters and 3 new postcards designed by Lower East for Kunsten. Museum of Modern Art, Aalborg – for the current exhibition about the danish artist Kurt Trampedach – Dark Encounters.
About the artist and the exhibition – from the museums website;
“When it comes to modern Danish art, Kurt Trampedach (1943-2013) is now considered something of a legend. Throughout his career he went his own way, with no regard for conventions or contemporary taste. With his original artistic language he made an early breakthrough at the start 1960s and quickly achieved international success.
The exhibition features an extensive selection of the artist’s most important works from the 1960s and 1970s, including self-portraits, sculptures and tableaux loaned from both Danish museums and private collectors.“
The exhibition will be on show until January 6th 2019.
We designed a series of four posters for the exhibition “Vilhelm Lundstrøm og den gode smag“ (Vilhelm Lundstrøm & the epitome of good taste) at Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark.
Here you can see all the posters – if you want to own one or more of these master pieces, you can buy them in the shop at the museums. You can also pay a visit to the museum – they will, among other exhibitions be showing the fantastic William Kentridge exhibition “The Refusal of Time“ from March 21th.

The exiting exhibition ‘Roman Ondak. History Repeats Itself’ are running until September 17th at Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark.
We had the pleasure to design the book for the exhibition by the Slovakian artist Roman Ondak. The book is enriched by very good photos from the opening days of ‘History Repeats Itself’ and from the building of the exhibition.

A quick reportage from the excellent and beautiful exhibition “Vilhelm Lundstrøm – The Epitome of Good Taste“ (Vilhelm Lundstrøm og den gode smag). Lower East designed the book for the exhibition, a damn fine book, and almost 300 pages. Go, check out the ‘epitome of good taste’ yourself, and buy the book of course.
From the museums website: “Vilhelm Lundstrøm (1893-1950) is one of the most famous and beloved Danish painters of the 20th century. He began by shaking up bourgeois taste with his expressive, flamboyant style. Later, Lundstrøm captured the modern spirit with his simple still lifes of jugs and fruit, and female models on blue backgrounds. Designers such as Poul Henningsen and Finn Juhl were inspired by Lundstrøm. They all dreamed of a better world through simple lines and functional forms. The exhibition tells a story of Lundstrøm and Danish design.“
The exhibition is collaboration between Brandts, Museum for Art & Visual Culture in Odense and Kunsten, Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark.
Vilhelm Lundstrøm – The Epitome of Good Taste is on show at Brandts until August 27th, 2017 and then at Kunsten from September 15th, 2017.
History Repeats Itself
Lower East were at the opening of the exhibition Roman Ondak – History Repeats Itself, at Kunsten Museum of Modern Art, Aalborg.
Here are some of our impressions from our tour into the interesting and beautiful space the artist have created at the museum – it is a very rich and engaging, thoughtful and playful exhibition, really worth a visit (or two!).
Later on this month we will do the graphic design of the book for History Repeats Itself – we are looking very much forward to again work together with Kunsten, and with Roman Ondak on creating the book.
About the exhibition – from the museums website:
“A collision between the past and present, adolescence and adulthood is a central theme of the exhibition titled History Repeats Itself. Exploring themes relevant for today’s political development, the exhibition strives to inspire critical thinking, dealing with topics the artist tracked from his memory of the period when he grew up during communism in former Czechoslovakia, and which similarly, as if in a loop, a new generation of young people might be confronted with at present.
The exhibition History Repeats Itself invites the viewer to participate in a suggestive staged show, laid out as clues tracing both the passage of time and our capacity to learn from history. The audience visiting is engaged in a sort of archaeological field work, imitating the artist’s own method, where objects are carefully collected and laid out as hidden messages.“
History Repeats Itself will be on the show until September – go, run, drive or fly to Aalborg, Denmark to dig into the world of Roman Ondak!
