COBRA'S 'Held Og Hasard (Luck and Chance)'

About

COBRA (which stands for Copenhagen/Bruxelles /Amsterdam) was an artistic group that was founded in 1948 and in its first form lasted until 1951. The name was coined by Christian Dotremont but the group also included important artists such as Asger Jorn, Karel Appel, Constant, Corneille and Joseph Noiret. Influenced by expressionism, the group looked to the art of children and medical patients with mental illness for inspiration. A small collection of documents, artists books, journals and small works from the Cobra artists will be displayed in Summerhall Project Room. The title of the show comes from Asger Jorn's first artist's book. All items are taken from the Heart Fine Art Archive.
