Exhibition poster with the work, In the Arena of Vanguard Cities, (2015), by the English artist Simon Evans, (b. 1972). The poster was printed in conjunction with Louisiana's major exhibition of new acquisitions, Illumination , in 2016.
Evans lived out a boyhood dream as a skater in San Francisco, then started writing and broke through as a visual artist in 2003. Evans works with text-based collages – often composed of short poetic sentences and drawings. Simon Evans captures the poetry of everyday life, to which he can have an ironic distance.
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 museum's largest presentation of new art in the collection to date.
Dimensions: 60 x 87.8 cm
