Taking its name from the preface of a 1947 book about his work, this exhibition of the work of Danish artist Asger Jorn (1914-1973), entitled 'A Challenge to Light' ('Um desafio à luz'), brings together more than 100 pieces. They include his organically shaped drawings, watercolours and etchings, as well as found art collages of street poster fragments. Having first achieved fame through his collaboration with the CoBrA Group (1948-1951) and as one of the founders of the Marxist-minded Situationist International, Jorn's art continues to engage with what the exhibition's curator Jacob Thage calls the artist's 'personal iconography'.
