BEFORE THE OPENING: Indirectly beer plays a role in our fascination of MZN Shrawan’s art

MZN Shrawan’s sculptures reminds us of the French impressionists who play an important role in our art upbringing.

Somehow MZN Shrawan’s art reminds us of the small bronze sculptures by French impressionist Degas’ Dancers, some of Gauguin’s Thaiti sculptures or even of French modernist Rodin – artists we have grown up with through Brewer Carl Jacobsen’s (founder of Carlsberg Brewery) collection at Glyptoteket in Copenhagen.

Why we work with Carlsberg.

Since its start in 1902 The Carlsberg Foundation’s primary aim was to support the New Carlsberg Glyptotek, which houses the art collections that Carl and Ottilia donated to the the Danes.

Today The Carlsberg Foundation also works to promote the wider study of art and art history, helping other museums to acquire works of art and providing public artworks for squares, gardens and buildings across Denmark.

So Carlsberg plays an important role on the Danish art scene. And in our lives, too. Being Copenhageners we’ve been surrounded by the best art in the world funded by beer money.

We fund all our art activities ourselves.

Our used to.

When Carlsberg – during one our openings back in 2014 – asked us if they could help us with beers at our openings we decided to make an exception.

Of course we work with companies that appreciate art 🙂
