Kicking it off in Miami Beach
True to tradition, we spent the second weekend of December in Miami Beach, surrounded by pure artistic ingenuity in our booth at Pulse Contemporary Art Far. In formidably good company of our six splendid artists, Nicola Verlato, Jean-Pierre Roy, Mi Ju, John Jacobsmeyer, Christian Rex van Minnen and William Powhida, the bar was set mercilessly high!
Feeling right at home on the beach, we had built up a great zest for taking on Miami with an outstanding visionary installation of artworks with a predominant political agenda!
We launched our display at Pulse Miami Beach with an explosion of utterly magic and profound visual expressions converting the booth into a political arena of sharp, satirical and brilliant visual themes. Art collectors from all over the world gathered to get a full view of the massive, large-scale masterpieces that drew them in from afar.
Each in their distinguishing style; Christian Rex van Minnen’s profound, grotesque portraits, Nicola Verlato’s conoclastic mythical conflicts, William Powhida’s razor-sharp social criticism, Mi Ju’s overwhelming eruptions of detailing, Jean-Pierre Roy’s incongruous temporal realms, and John Jacobsmeyer’s parallel world of digital and physical reality, created nothing short of a showstopper!
A big thank you to everyone, who showed up to view the spectacular masterpieces of Gallery Poulsen's artistic dreamteam.
We had quite an eventful weekend in Miami Beach and cannot wait to return to in 2018!

Upcoming show: Mu Pan Retrospective
"Battles Without Honor and Humanity"
We can hardly wait to rip open the year 2018 with a solo show by American-Chinese artist extraordinaire, Mu Pan, and his signature world of brutal battlefields.
This exhibition is the most brutal and glorious point of Mu Pan’s career being a narrative painter. It will be a retrospective exhibition, showing selected artworks from the past 12 years under the theme of the struggle of human’s illusion of justice and humanity.
The title is borrowed from Kinji Fukasaku’s 1970s series of films depicting defeated world war II soliders becoming the rulers of Hiroshima’s underworld in the post-war Japan.
Mu Pan: "Battles Without Honor and Humanity"

You most certainly have something to look forward to, when we connect the best of both worlds and present the latest trends of New York in the equally artistic centre of Jutland!

Currently on view - Taylor Schuktek: "Chronos"
On a cold and dark November evening, we opened the doors to Taylor Schultek’s first solo exhibition of desolate alleys, dilapidated back yards and masked boys. Thirteen hyper complex perspective paintings leads us through gates, stairs and corridors, all the way into Shultek’s ingenious mind.
Don’t miss the chance to see this formidable show – it runs thru December 21st!
17.11 – 21.12
The gallery will be closed during the holidays from December 22nd - January 9th.
From all of us to all of you - a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
