With the title Generations - Transformations, HFKD has chosen to make a group exhibition, which pays tribute to the creativity that unfolds daily at the house's Art & Design school. In August this year, it is 15 years since the art school started in the house. At that time it was called BGK (Visual Art basic course), since then a lot has happened, both with the Art & Design school and the entire creative talent development in Holstebro, which now also has departments within performing arts, writing, dance and music, all gathered under one name; Danish Talent Academy.
The exhibition shows works by 8 artists, all of whom have been former students at HFKD's Art & Design school. The artists range widely generation wise, from Jens Ardal, who was the very first student to enroll in the school in 2005, to Mads Hyldgaard Nielsen, as the most recent student who was a student in 2016. All 8 artists has after their time at the Art and Design school been admitted to higher, creative educations at home or abroad and have had great success with their practice. The Art & Design school may have been their very first start to their own artistic careers and what since has led them further out into the world in their own direction. The title of the exhibition thus also reflects on how different generations, with basis in the same place, can be transformed into vastly different personal interests and individual practices. The exhibition thus presents both a broad selection of different artistic media; sculpture, painting, video, photography and textile works, as well as a range of very different themes.
