Opening performance with hundreds of participants from Holstebro Festuge: local and international artists, institutions, associations and ensembles. Directed by Eugenio Barba in collaboration with Teatro Potlach and Rina Skeel.
HFKD has taken a different twist on the theme of the week – ”The Wild West”- and composed a group exhibition with some of the most current contemporary Danish artists, all of whom use “The wild” as part of their works. The artists all have a common interest for nature and spirituality. The exhibition is composed of works of art with a general common theme about venturing into the unknown, the wild and the foreign, expressing the incomprehensible nature and the spirituality connected to it. The unknown is what is not yet discovered – what is foreign – and often associated with a particular notion or expectation. An exciting and thought-provoking exhibition by contemporary artists at a high professional level.
The opening ceremony, which takes place on Saturday 10th June from 15:00 to 19:00, includes performances and events especially created for this occasion, refreshments and a unique opportunity to meet several of the artists.
Opening hours: Friday 12-16, Saturday – Sunday 11-17
The exhibition is open from 10th June – 30th July
The exhibition is curated by Anna Bak, made in collaboration with Danish Talent Academy and supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, Færchfonden and Holstebro Municipality.
