An exhibit on the artist's 50th birthday
The exhibition Altid Mange Problemer offers an unprecedented opportunity to experience Danish artist John Kørner's greatest works, alongside new paintings and site-specific installations. Marking the year John Kørner turns 50 years, Kunsthal Charlottenborg presents the largest exhibition of his works to date. The retrospective exhibition focuses specifically on societal issues that Kørner has addressed over the years.
Arguably one of Denmark’s most significant contemporary artists, John Kørner creates powerful artworks that reflect current political and social questions. Especially the notion of the ‘problem’ has been a recurring theme throughout a large part of his career, figuring either as a painted motive or as a physical object.
John Kørner (b. 1967) has exhibited at numerous museums and art institutions and carried out several permanent commissions, including the mural Afghanistan at the Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg. In 2000, just two years after graduating from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, he was awarded the prestigious international Carnegie Art Award.
The exhibition is supported by:
Augustinus Fonden, Konsul Georg Jorck og Hustru Emma Jorck’s Fond, 15. Juni Fonden, Beckett-Fonden, Oticon Fonden, Statens Kunstfond, Det Obelske Familiefond, Knud Højgaards Fond and Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond.
