Pink Caviar

The Louisiana Museum outside Copenhagen is hosting an exhibition of acquisitions from the last three years, and they have certainly been busy buying.  It spans everything from collage to large sculptures, paintings, and installations.  Germans are heavily represented here, with works by Struth, Tilmans, Polke, and Kiefer among others, but the range is more global.  There is a spectacular cloud of humming microphones by Mumbai-based artist Shilpa Gupta and a room of lights and mirrors by Kusama.  Another highlight is a room lined with photos by Hans-Peter Feldman depicting people ranging in age from 1 to 100.  A small sampling is shown below.
