Louisiana. Ends September 10.

Danish Tal R has a growing international reputation and this exhibition rounds off Louisiana’s triptych of contemporary artists.  The exhibition title ‘Academy of Tal R’ should be understood as a mildly humorous provocation, since Tal R’s artwork always appears non-conformist, wild and simply unacademic.
