In 2013 the Danish artist Carl-Henning Pedersen would have been 100 years old, and ARKEN Museum of Modern Art and Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelt Museum are celebrating his birthday with a large special exhibition. The exhibition shows works by the ebullient, poetic, colour-loving artist who was among other things a leading figure in the European artist group Cobra, and whose hallmark was a boundless imagination and an inexhaustible joy in creation. For the exhibition a research-based, richly illustrated catalogue is produced in Danish and English, with seven articles, a biography and a selection of the artist's poems. It reproduces more than 100 of the exhibition's works as well as documentary pictorial material from the rich archives at the Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelt Museum. The publication offers a broad introduction to the artist's work and at the same time offers new, surprising angles on themes such as the spontaneous, the connections between the painterly and the literary, the inspiration from the photographic medium and the significance of the artist's large decoration works.
