Per Kirkeby: Paintings and SculptureOpening day for the exhibition "Per Kirkeby: Paintings and Sculpture" at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. The exhibition introduces to American audiences Danish artist Per Kirkeby (born 1938), one of Europe's most celebrated contemporary artists. The artist's roles as geologist, filmmaker, architect, writer, and poet are reflected in this survey of approximately 45 works. Kirkeby's paintings and sculptures are constantly in flux, maintaining a dialogue between art and science. Organized by the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., this is Per Kirkeby's first American retrospective. After the Phillips Collection, Bowdoin is the only other venue hosting this important show. The exhibition will be on view through July 14, 2013.
