The Contemporary Art Scene takes Copenhagen
You are invited to enjoy the best art from more than 60 of the leading Nordic art galleries, when the art fair, Art Copenhagen 2012, opens its doors on Friday 14 September.
This year Art Copenhagen has also invited some of Europe’s fastest-growing young galleries to participate at the art fair.
The Best Contemporary Art in Scandinavia
With more than 60 galleries from Denmark, Sweden and Finland Art Copenhagen stands out as the leading fair for contemporary art in Scandinavia.
This year the fair has invited a number of Europe#s most innovative young galleries to give visitors to the fair an insight into the developments in the European art scene.
“It has always been our intention to expand the fair to include the international art scene,” says Project Manager, Henriette Dybkaer.
“It was only natural for us to ask the recognised galleries, we already work with, to invite their foreign partners – and this approach has certainly delivered a higher quality than ever before.”
Saturday Night is Gallery Night
In the evening on Saturday 15 September Art Copenhagen introduces a new initiative in collaboration with the web portal, Kopenhagen Magasin. Select galleries in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg will be open from 7 to 10 pm to welcome visitors with even more appetite for art after the fair’s closing.
Events on Gallery Night are for free and open to the general public.
Artists Talks, Events and Discussions
Art Copenhagen also offers art buffs the opportunity to discover current trends in contemporary art through the fair’s extensive programme of stage events, panel discussions and artists’ talks.
