Sonja Ferlov Mancoba and Ernest Mancoba in The New York Times

"This show at Aicon includes 18 paintings and works on paper by Mancoba, handsomely installed against peach-colored walls, and paired with bronze sculptures by his wife, the Danish artist Sonja Ferlov Mancoba. Her bronzes of roughly finished metal, which can recall masks or totems, show the enduring influence of African sculpture on European modernism — and reaffirms that both husband and wife were working in a postwar Paris where a clean division of “African” and “European” aesthetics could not be made. The real urgency here, though, remains Ernest Mancoba’s abstractions. They ought to be in every serious modern art museum: not as a token of “African” modernism, but an exemplar of forms in motion." JASON FARAGO

Sonja Ferlov Mancoba and Ernest Mancoba at Aicon, New York

Sonja Ferlov Mancoba | Ernest Mancoba, is an important and timely exhibition that considers the creative impulses of two artists that were instrumental in founding the CoBrA avant-garde art movement. It will be the first major show in the United States of Sonja Ferlov Mancoba and the second of Ernest Mancoba (following the very successful first solo of the artist at Aicon Gallery in February, 2017). Sonja Ferlov Mancoba | Ernest Mancoba is the first exhibition of the two artists since their Centre Pompidou 2019 show (June 26 to September 29, 2019).

The exhibition juxtaposes a suite of canvases and drawings with a series of inspired sculptures tracing both artists’ heritage – Danish and South African respectively – and recording the profound influence they had on each other’s work. Aicon Art’s show is in generous partnership with Galerie Mikael Andersen, Copenhagen and the Ferlov Mancoba Estate.

"Through his art, Touborg collects motifs from his local environment to create complex works with a rough collage approach and a sensitive painterly voice. Such as Soulland, Touborg’s focus is on versatility, tactility and contrasts in life within the surfaces of fabrics."

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Estate Ferlov Manoba.

Signe Guttormsen wins Farveprisen 2019!

The prize committee has selected Signe Guttormsen as recipient of Farveprisen 2019 for her work If Walls Could Talk created for the new arcade and entrance at Køge Town Hall in Køge south of Copenhagen.

The committee writes: “Consciously and refinedly, Signe Guttormsen draws on almost 500 years of history on textiles with light and colours, where tight lines reproduce the town hall's changing facade over the many years. At the same time she guides the way into the town hall with colourful torches; mirroring the political parties housed in the building.”

The award ceremony will take place on:

Thursday 21 May 1pm in the arcade at Køge Town Hall

It is welcome to all.
