Trondheim kunstmuseum reopens its main venue next to Nidaros Cathedral on April 22 with an exhibition of works from one of Europe’s most important collections of contemporary art, Collezione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, shown for the first time in Norway at TKM.
Collezione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo was started in the 1990s by Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, since 1995 the President of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin. In addition to an impressive history of acquisitions, exhibitions, commissioning and production of important works, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo has also played an important part in spreading knowledge of contemporary art through loaning extensively. Selections from the collection have recently been shown at Macro in Rome and Whitechapel Art Gallery in London. For this exhibition, the curators and the director at TKM have made a selection of around 30 works to be shown at the museum until the end of 2017.
