COPENHAGEN. The National Gallery of Denmark (Statens Museum for Kunst - SMK) has received a spectacular gift: a painting by one of the most important landscape artists ever to come out of Germany, Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840). The acquisition is nothing short of marvellous, says SMK director Mikkel Bogh, and in fact the painting came into the museum’s hands through something of a coincidence.

VIENNA. Foreign Gods. Fascination Africa and Oceania. In the Leopold Museum’s large-scale autumn exhibition (from 23 September 2016 to 9 January 2017) the museum’s comprehensive collection of African and Oceanic art is presented for the first time, announced leopoldmuseum.org. Allowing these objects to enter into a dialogue with select works by protagonists of Classical Modernism, the presentation calls to mind Europe’s exotic art adventure and its impact on the avant-garde. For the fascination held by art from ‘foreign’ cultures is reflected in numerous works of Classical Modernism and the museum’s founder Rudolf Leopold shared the enthusiasm that exponents of this movement had for such objects. Visitors are able to experience this first hand through the dialogue that the masks and figures enter into with works by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), Emil Nolde (1867-1956) and Max Ernst (1891-1976). At the same time, the alienating, ‘primitivist’ view that Modernist artists had of Africa and Oceania is questioned by the contemporary artist Kader Attia (1970) from a post-colonial perspective.
