X-ARCHITECTS EXHIBITS WORK AT THE LOUISIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART IN HUMLEBAEK, DENMARK
X-Architects exhibited work at the exhibition "Arab Contemporary – Architecture, Culture and Identity" from 31st Jan 2014 – to 4th May 2014, at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark, along with Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Paris, and Henning Larsen Architects, Copenhagen. It was a cross-over exhibition, mixing architecture, art, photography, documentary and film.
"Arab Contemporary is the second exhibition in the series “Architecture, culture and identity” – and is a successor to the exhibition New Nordic, which Louisiana showed in 2012. The series is about how architecture is a bearer of identity and helps to shape the cultural distinctiveness of a country or a region. The exhibition features architecture and art as well as documentary film and photography. The exhibition spotlights, among other things, new cities such as Dubai, old Yemenitic civilizations, and new architectural projects that relate to the desert as ‘place’. It shows how studios like Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Paris, X-Architects, Dubai, and Henning Larsen Architects, Copenhagen, intervene in the region with new interpretations. A topical focal point for the exhibition is the relationship between private and public space, which in recent years has been undergoing constant transformation socially, politically and architecturally."
