From Rønnebæksholm:

"How does art history look with the eyes of an artist? Rønnebæksholm has invited artist Julie Sass to present her short story about an artistic phenomenon that is the focal point of her work. Her choice has fallen on abstraction. Through 60 works by 23 artists from 11 countries and over a historical span of almost 100 years, the exhibition frames elements of the abstraction that Sass sees the greatest potential today, and which she herself gives form through newly produced works."

A Brief History of Abstraction includes works by Alain Biltereyst, Ann Pibal, Arturo Herrera, Dan Walsh, Ebbe Stub Wittrup, Erin Lawlor, Eva Steen Christensen, Hansina Iversen, Henri Michaux, James Hyde, Julie Sass, Man Ray, Maria Buras, Marie Søndergaard Lolk, Michelle Grabner, Moira Dryer, Noël Dolla, Rachel Beach, Rannva Kunoy, Shirley Goldfarb, Shirley Jaffe, Sonja Ferlov Mancoba, Vilhelm Bjerke Petersen, and Yoko Ono.
