The Meeting Point
The first presentation of works from the collection you meet at Holstebro Kunstmuseum unfolds in Færch's Villa. Through a selection of objects displayed on shelfs, this wall exhibition serves as an introduction to the various facets of Holstebro Kunstmuseum's collection.
The collection at Holstebro Kunstmuseum incorporates, in its totality, several smaller collections that have been added during the history of the museum – often through generous donations from passionate connoisseurs who believed that their significant and much-loved collections should benefit us all and provide both knowledge and pleasure to the general public. Examples of such ‘collections within the collection’ include Poul Holm Olsen’s collection of traditional African art, Ejler Bille and Agnete Therkildsen’s collection of Balinese art, and anthropologist Mette Kvist Jørgensen’s donation of Peruvian art by the Shipibo-Conibo indigenous people – to name just a few.
