FRA ARNOLDIS ATELIER - Artexhibition by Per Arnoldi

Per Arnoldi exhibits at Børglum Kloster in 2020


Arnoldi has traveled to the furthest outer corners of his long life and great workshop in Raadvad to find works that could paint a rich picture of his restless business, spread across many genres: paintings, sculptures, drawings, graphics, posters, porcelain, ceramics, scenography, color schemes… but also books, lectures, journalism, debate, performances with their own Jazz trio and radio and TV.

We show paintings dating back to 1959 to brand new works from the 2020 workshop.

Arnoldi has worked in over 28 countries and the exhibition will document in several photos the distant efforts in both Japan, USA and Europe.

The sculptures include both older drafts and his brand new national monuments projects, such as the memorial for the fallen war sailors in WW2, which the Queen revealed in September 2017 at the Memorial Hill in Ryvangen near Copenhagen.

Thus, the exhibition tries to get well "out into every corner" ... even with such a comprehensive work is almost an endless task.

Thousands upon thousands of examples of his art have spread widely throughout the world. The over 600 international poster works, each printed in large print, have spread the knowledge of his special very clear and modern style.”

Permanent exhibition The Art of Fashion – a new fashion exhibition at Børglum Monastery

High Necklines, low cuts, short or long?

Women’s fashion has changed a lot throughout the last 100 years, going from one end of the spectrum to the other, and them back again. The Art of Fashion is a entirely new fashion exhibition at Børglum Monastery, where you are able to experience the changes of fashion throughout the last 100 years.

To be fashionable and modern has meant many different things throughout the last century, as fashion evolved through upturns, economic crisis, world wars and cold wars. The iconic fashion designers have through this century affected the fashion of their time in their own way, as the female role in society also changed immensely.

What was deemed fashionable around the first part of the century, which was greatly inspired by the Art Nouveau style? How should you dress in the roaring twenties? What was the latest trend in Paris during the 1940s? What was “elegance” in the 1960s?.

What effect did the Second World War have on women’s fashion and their role in society?

The answer to all of these questions you may discover by visiting our new exhibition, which brings you on a journey through fashion of the last 100 years.

The exhibition showcases dresses and other fashion items that represent the main fashion tendencies of their time, making it possible to discover what was deemed beautiful and aesthetically pleasing throughout the 20th century.

The exhibition will be open for visitors from Saturday the 29th of April 2017. The exhibition will become part of the Monastery’s 15 other permanent exhibitions and may be visited during the normal opening hours.
