Gallery LM now opens a permanent gallery with exhibition rooms in St. Sct. Mikkelsgade 10 A, 8800 Viborg.

The gallery will hold an opening reception on Saturday 22 January 2022 – more about this later.

The exhibitions in 2022 will exchange between permanent and new artists, between thematic exhibitions focusing on a single artist and exhibitions that go into depth with individual works of art. There will also be space for courses, presentations, teaching and much, much more.

The gallery’s focus area has so far been TRASH ART. There will always be art that has an emphasis on recycling and climate activism, but other facets are added continuously to expand the content of the artworks.

There will be exhibitions that are different, funny, thoughtful, and investigative. The exhibitions will target the diversity of an art audience.

I am very much looking forward to expanding the opportunities to show art by the talented artists who collaborate with me, and I am also very much looking forward to establishing contacts in art environments in Viborg.

More detailed plans will follow in January.

St. Sct. Mikkelsgade is a side street to Viborgs Sct. Mathiasgade, and next door to Sortebrødre church.

From discarded flip-flops to white walls

Art made of waste that a few years ago ended up in a waste bin, that is now the reality of an exhibition entitled: PART OF US.

Plastic waste, computer waste and stuff from daily consumption fill oceans of waste site in the world, creating major environmental problems for all of us – enveloping us – and affecting us and the environment.

Several artists in the West African country of Ghana have watched their part of the world be affected with concern and seriousness and have taken on their personal responsibilities to solve a small part of a major world problem. They have created art that is beautiful, thoughtful, colorful, inspiring and, above all, meaningful.

In addition to being Trash Art, the art is also an example of contemporary art from Ghana, where the past is part of stories about the present.

The artists are Anita Cudjoe, Azasime Lanto, Kojo Biney, Moses Seth, Patrick Tagoe-Turkson and T.T. Blankson.

Tagoe-Turkson: discarded flip-flops. Seth: Jute and symbols. Lanto: discarded eggshells

The exhibition can be seen in Pakhuset, St. Sankt Peder Stræde 2, 8800 Viborg (right by the Matthias Center). The exhibition opens on 3 of August and lasts until Sunday 29th of August. Open daily 1.30pm – 5pm, except Monday and Tuesday.

Welcome to a different exhibition – with relevance!

Gallery LM’s honorary artist Atta Kwami is currently exhibiting at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. However, due to Covid 19, the museum is currently closed. But the exhibition lasts until November 2020.

African Arts – Global Conversations

Atta Kwami
Brooklyn Museum, New York, USA
Until 15. November 2020.

African Arts—Global Conversations puts African arts where they rightfully belong within the global art historical canon. It brings those works into greater, meaningful art historical conversations and critiques previous ways that encyclopedic museums and the field of art have or have not included them.

Welcome to Anita Cudjoe, new artist at Gallery LM.

Anita Cudjoe characterizes her art as environmental activism. She examines the use of waste plastics and the destruction it causes to nature.

By recycling waste plastics in vibrating images illustrating social narratives, she transforms found rice bags into optically, alluring mosaics, that highlight concerns about food security and challenges faced by communities.
