Exhibition poster from Louisiana's major exhibition of new acquisitions, Illumination, in 2016. The brightly colored motif is a detail from American artist Alex Da Corte's multimedia installation, Delirium - The Foolish Virgin, Scene I. Here, Da Corte mixes bright neon colors with sensual materials and patterns to create an alternative universe reminiscent of a dreamlike disco.
Alex Da Corte (b. 1980) possesses a superb feeling for the color and form potential of materials and for their symbolic language detached from functions. Without a more precise plan with the objects, Da Corte risks it all and, according to his own statement, must succumb to the tension, the failure and the violence of fear.
Illumination was a lavish presentation of contemporary art from around the world. With works by Gerhard Richter, William Kentridge, Cindy Sherman, Alex Da Corte, Franz West, Catherine Opie, Jeff Wall and many more – including several young debutants in the museum's collection – Illumination became the largest presentation of new art from the collection at the time , in the history of the museum.
