ALLES KUNST - A SELECTION OF THE AALBORG MUNICIPALITY ART FOND COLLECTION AUGUST 12 – SEPTEMBER 3 2017
Kunsthal NORD presents a curated exhibition with works acquisitioned by the Art Foundation Aalborg in the years up to 2017. The art foundation consists of both art experts and elected political members and its primary purpose is to buy works of art for the municipality. The acquired works are preferably placed in public facilities, in or in front of public buildings, institutions and offices for the benefit of the municipality's employees and citizens.
ALLES KUNST at Kunsthal Nord is an exhibition to show the public, which works the municipality has acquired. Simultaneously it is also a way of presenting an insight into the collection to the representatives of the municipality's many institutions, as they are able to loan works from the collection and display them in their respective rooms.
The Art Foundation and Kunsthal NORD hope that many institutions, such as kindergartens, schools or offices will use the opportunity to see the exhibition, and also involve children and young people in the selection of the works that they will loan. The art in the collection of the foundation that has not been selected for ALLES KUNST can be seen through a photo documentation, available throughout the exhibition period in Kunsthal NORD.
The exhibition will run until September 3, 2017.
The Art Foundation has existed since 1970 and is behind many art projects in the municipality. There are many opportunities to see art purchased by the Foundation, every time you go for a walk through the city or visit a municipal institution, school or facility. The Art Foundation assumes that artistic decoration supports the intention to make the municipality an even better and more inspiring place to live and move. The Art Foundation also allocates travel grants to especially talented visual artists and has a total budget of 375,000 DKK per year.
