The Arken Museum of Denmark will shortly open the exhibition Gold and Magic including one work by our represented artist Mercedes Lara.
A project proposed to join a golden journey to discover how artists have always used gold to wield power and magic.Gold and Magic takes visitors on a journey through millennia to explore the power and magic hidden in the shiny and precious material. In art, the fascination with gold is as old as art itself, and it is shared by artists across time and space. From ancient times to the present, golden artworks have fascinated and seduced us, and through them we have exerted power over distant cultures and communicated with higher powers.
Gold and Magic presents works by our represented artistMercedes Lara among others such as Chris Burden, Eva Steen Christensen, Zhang Ding, Elmgreen & Dragset, Subodh Gupta, Grayson Perry, Bill Viola, Ai Weiwei and many more.
Golfo Pérsico is the work that can be seen at the Museum and that it was exhibited last year at Enter Art Fair (Copenhagen).
