ART COPENHAGEN 2007 – The Nordic Art Fair

www.artcopenhagen.dk
 
Art Copenhagen will be held in the Forum Copenhagen September 21-23.

The largest art fair in the Nordic countries presents 73 leading galleries from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden as well as works by more than 550 international artists — covering the full spectrum of contemporary and modern art.

For the past four years, Art Copenhagen has updated its profile in order to match the ambitious and positive wave currently sweeping Nordic art into international waters. This year the balcony area has been expanded to include a number of exciting, young galleries, extraordinary installations as well as performance. The galleries here and on the main floor present a wealth of new works by the great masters and the newest talents on the art scene. Among these works are Morten Hebsgaard’s peculiar installation, Hesselholdt & Mejlvang’s guard tower and Ingen Frygt’s great tent, in itself an entire exhibition stand.

Art has become part of the agenda, and the latest currents in the art world spread to fashion magazines, interior decorating and architecture. Moreover, people buy art like never before. Apart from being a marketplace, Art Copenhagen is also a forum for debate, focusing on the artists, their ideas and current trends in art. We invite our guests to a programme of conversations and lectures with, among others, the artists Jeppe Hein, Jesper Just, Colonel and Ingen Frygt, the on-line art magazine kopenhagen.dk and U-TURN, the quadrennial for contemporary art.

This year’s conducted tours focus on Nordic art and provide opportunities to zoom in on installations and art photography, not to mention an all-round introduction to the galleries represented at Art Copenhagen. These daily theme tours will bring visitors closer to the art they take a particular interest in – be it for their private homes, for a business or for an art society.

When it’s time to rest your legs and collect your thoughts, the balcony bar offers a great cup of coffee, delightful wines and something good to eat.

Art Copenhagen is a marketplace, an exhibition and the place to seek advice, inspiration and guidance regarding your next purchase of art – no matter whether you are a collector or pursuing your first work of art.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Opening speech by Brian Mikkelsen, Minister of Culture, Friday, September 21, 2.15 PM.
