Poulsen’s Fifteen took the Meatpacking District by storm!


Only a week has passed since we let Poulsen’s Fifteen out on the loose in Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District and we still cannot get our arms down in pure excitement! On Friday June 17th, Gallery Poulsen released the utmost charismatic crew of artists to execute an elaborate summer heist. They surely succeeded and made an absolute splash of the opening of ”Poulsen’s Fifteen: New Art from New York – part VII”

The heist commenced on the minute, as our artist crew kicked in the door with explosive pop art, intense mythology, sci-fi inspired creations, and coloristic compositions wrapped in satirical undertones, delivered with sassy charm.

John Jacobsmeyer, Tom Sanford, Abigail Schmidt, Nicola Verlato and Jean-Pierre Roy were all present at the opening, and together with Jacob Dahlstrup, gave the exhibition a touch of personal charisma. We further marked our special union with the New York art scene with a second day of celebrating. We could not think of a better place to unite Copenhagen with New York than on the barbecue!

The show is open until Saturday July 9th, so do not miss out on a chance to see this year’s s outstanding summer show!

Upcoming show: Mu Pan solo

Latest work by Mu Pan: "Dinoasshole chapter 1, Raptors" 2016, acrylic on wood, 61 x 76 cm, 24 x 30 in

We are very excited to kick off the end of the summer with a brand new solo show in August. It is not going to go quitely, when we invite you inside Mu Pan’s fabulously bloody universe where storytelling is key. The Chinese-American artist possesses an astounding attention to detail. His artistic expression reflects both a preoccupation with oriental war history as well a unique artistic craftsmanship.

Mu Pan is no newcomer to Gallery Poulsen. After having participated on Poulsen’s team for big international art fairs, such as Pulse Miami and Pulse New York, as well as Art Herning, his works never fail to turn heads and allure people into his paintings and the stories they tell. Thus, the time is ripe for Mu Pan to shine!

Stay tuned!

Mu Pan:
Solo
12.08 – 10.09

The future of Gallery Poulsen


May 19th was a day to remember! On this day we recived the key to our brand new gallery space in Copenhagen's Brown Meatpacking District!

The space itself, however, is anything but new. But with a firm, yet loving hand, this old slaughterhouse will soon be tranformed into a brutally beautiful gallery. In January 2017 we will open the doors to a grand and magnificent new gallery with a spectacular solo show with none other than Jean-Pierre Roy.

We cannot wait to show you our new home in the Brown Meatpacking District and invite you to a grand opening celebration!
