7 X Space X Time &
George Condo: The Way I Think
Louisiana, Gl Strandvej 13, Humlebæk; louisiana.dk
Ahead of Louisiana turning 60 next year, its director Poul Erik Tøjner has curated a stunning exhibition of classic and contemporary works from the museum’s collection to remind us of its invaluable contribution to the Danish art scene.

Set in the museum’s South Wing, 7 X Space X Time (ongoing, ends April 15) mixes works across the dimensions of genre, size, expression, space and time.

Also ongoing is The Way I Think (ends Feb 4), an exhibition by US artist George Condo, who is also 60 years old!

No emotion, concept or individual is too low-brow for him, as motifs of dustmen and comic-strip heroes are accompanied by elements of Cubism and American Expressionism. Condo clearly thinks differently from most artists.

Atelier Pica Pica: Soft Cell
ongoing, ends Dec 22; Eighteen Gallery, Flæsketorvet 69, Cph V
The Belgian-based multidisciplinary artist collective Atelier Pica Pica developed paintings, drawings and sculptures through a ‘trialogue’, taking inspiration and direction from one another, as well as the lyrics of Frank Zappa.

Pastel colours, geometrical figures and scenes from day-to-day life feature heavily in the work of Polly Bosworth, a British artist and graphic designer who moved to Copenhagen in 2013. Bosworth’s work reminds us of life’s simple pleasures and how we tend to miss them in the rush.
