Louisiana on Paper: Joseph Beuys
March 7 - June 9
Louisiana has dedicated their small series of exhibitions called ‘Louisiana on Paper’ to German artist Joseph Beuys (1921-1986), and aims to give an in-depth study of the artist’s process of creation and register of ideas, rather than showing the usual work found in museums worldwide by Beuys.

Hilma af Klint - A Pioneer of Abstraction
March 7 - July 6
Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) has a story unknown to most people, however did her exhibition at Moderna Museet in 2013 become the best-attended exhibition ever by a Swedish artist. In relation to Yoko Ono’s Half A-Wind-Show from 2013 and Women of the Avant-Garde from 2012, Louisiana presents Hilma af Klint and the story of a female artist working on the edge of the established art world. The artist’s experience and symbolic language has resulted in abstract paintings that were never shown in public in her lifetime, during which she only exhibited her figurative pictures.

ARAB CONTEMPORARY - Architecture, Culture and Identity
January 31 - May 4
The second exhibition in the series of ‘Architecture, Culture and Identity’, ARAB CONTEMPORARY attempts to show features shared by the Arab countries, from language, visual culture to big scale architecture. The exhibition will trace lines from old civilisations to modern western architectural offices, making new interpretations in the region, shown through architecture, art, photography, documentary and film.

Emil Nolde
July 4 - October 19
While being one of the most important representatives of German Expressionism, Emil Nolde’s (1867-1956) both biographically and geographically connection to Denmark, has made him a part of Danish art history. With the artist’s first retrospective exhibition in decades, Louisiana will show more than 140 works, covering his well-known powerful, intensely colourful expression.

Philip Guston
June 4 - September 7
The american painter Philip Guston (1913-1980) is already represented in Louisiana’s own collection, but the museum hopes, with this upcoming exhibition, to offer the public an opportunity to experience the painters work more detailed, which often involve simple conditions of existence with clear influence of his Jewish background.
