About Faurschou Foundation - 关于林冠艺术基金会

 

Faurschou Foundation was established in 2011 by Jens Faurschou—a Danish collector, art advisor, and philanthropist—in order to champion artists and foster cross-cultural dialogue and exchange internationally, but particularly between the East and the West. The Foundation has two primary areas of activity: acquiring significant works of contemporary art for its private collection and organizing museum-quality exhibitions across the globe, which offer visitors unique experiences and opportunities.

The privately owned Faurschou Foundation began in Copenhagen—where it is still headquartered—but now also has permanent exhibition spaces in Beijing (798) and, more recently, New York (Greenpoint, Brooklyn), as well as a reoccurring temporary space in Venice. The Foundation’s international exhibition programme, which consists of both thematic presentations and solo exhibitions, draws considerably from the Foundation’s sizeable and growing art collection, but also includes special commissions produced in collaboration with artists, galleries, and other institutions.

Faurschou has engaged and championed numerous artists, through its collection and exhibitions, including Ai Weiwei, Louise Bourgeois, Cai Guo-Qiang, Tracey Emin, Anselm Kiefer, Ragnar Kjartansson, Liu Wei, Liu Xiaodong, Paul McCarthy, Shirin Neshat, Yoko Ono, Gabriel Orozco, Robert Rauschenberg, Bill Viola, and Danh Vo, among others.

 

林冠艺术基金会由丹麦收藏家、画廊主和慈善家严思·法斯高于2011年设立,旨在支持推广优秀艺术家,并促进东西方跨文化对话和国际交流。基金会致力于两大运营领域:构建当代艺术重要作品收藏体系以及在全球组织美术馆品质的展览,为参观者提供独特的体验和机会。

林冠艺术基金会始创于丹麦哥本哈根(总部),在中国北京(798艺术区)和近期在美国纽约(布鲁克林绿点)设有常设展览空间,同时在威尼斯特设临时空间。基金会的国际展览策划由主题展览和艺术家个展组成,大多取自基金会规模可观并不断扩充的艺术藏品,也包括与艺术家、画廊和其他机构联合委任创作的特别策划。

林冠艺术基金会通过收藏和展示吸引和支持推广了众多知名艺术家,包括艾未未、路易丝·布尔乔、蔡国强、翠西·艾敏、安塞尔姆·基弗、拉格纳·基亚尔坦松、刘韡、刘小东、保罗·麦卡锡、西丽·娜沙特、小野洋子、加布里埃尔· 奥罗斯科、罗伯特·劳森伯格、比尔·维奥拉和傅丹等。
