Danish Artists Expand Limits of Traditional Art
“2-D or Not 2-D: Danish Artists Flirt with Space” opens Jan. 22 in the Main Gallery, and will run through March 5. The exhibit, curated by Mille Guldebeck and Else Ploug Isaksen and organized by the Bowling Green State University Fine Arts Center, is a collection of serious works by seven highly respected Danish artists. The exhibit expands the limits of traditional Danish art into the realms of fantasy and to the borders of abstraction.
