GL Strand Art Society
The GL Strand Art Society in Copenhagen is one of the oldest and most well renowned art institutions in Denmark. It first opened in 1825 and in 2011 it underwent an extensive renovation, making it a leading venue for modern and contemporary art in Copenhagen. GL Strand re-opened with the widely recognized exhibition The Air is on Fire by David Lynch and has since hosted exhibitions by artists such as Georg Baselitz, Louise Bourgeois, Elmgreen & Dragset, Henrik Vibskov and Jonathan Meese as well as upcoming Danish and international artists. VLS did the redesign of the GL Strand identity as well as design for several exhibitions and events. The new style reflects both the classic values and the modern approach of GL Strand.
The film director behind the films Blue Velvet, Eraserhead and the legendary TV series Twin Peaks has achieved cult status worldwide, but long before he threw himself into cinematography, he studied art at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. The exhibition at GL Strand offered a comprehensive insight into his artistic universe - from the early works from high school in the 1960s to the latest - created in the days before the opening. It displayed paintings, drawings, manipulated photographs, lithographs, watercolors, early experimental and interactive sound sculpture on all three floors and a large light sculpture in the courtyard with the artist's signature bent in neon.
