The Museum of Danish America will feature two contemporary Danish artists in 2019 in an exhibition titled “Vessel: Ceramic Art by Michael Geertsen and Morten Løbner Espersen.” The exhibit will open at the Museum of Danish America on March 22 through September 2. It will then move to Norway House in Minneapolis to be on view September 13 through November 3.

Geertsen and Espersen both represent current ceramic art in Denmark, interpreting traditional ceramic vessel forms in very different ways. For the museum audience, these works offer an opportunity to explore how familiar ceramic objects – like vases, pitchers, and plates – can be re-imagined in creative ways. The forms, surface textures, colors, and dimensions illustrate an infinite variety of possibilities, all within the theme of ”Vessel.”

This exhibition is organized in cooperation with the Jason Jacques Gallery in New York City, which represents both artists.
