|This year's show - Art Copenhagen 2012|
||From Melbourne to Bristol and Berlin, this year's Art Copenhagen takes the plunge and opens up for participation by galleries from outside of Scandinavia. In addition to galleries from the top of the Nordic contemporary art scene, visitors will also discover up-and-coming and established galleries from around the world among the fair's 70 exhibitors.|
The new international profile was developed in collaboration between selected the Danish galleries and Art Copenhagen. Fair organisers asked a number of selected galleries to select a foreign partner gallery with an interesting profile for Art Copenhagen. As a result, ten new international galleries have found their way to the fair among others A.L.I.C.E (BE), Paul Andriesse (NL), Work Projects (GB) Neon Parc (AU) and Laden fuer Nichts - (DE)
18 solo presentations
Another notable feature of Art Copenhagen 2012 will be a special focus on solo presentations. A total of 18 galleries have chosen to dedicate all or a large part of their stands to exhibiting a single artist's works. Thus visitors will experience solo exhibitions by Tony Matelli at Andrehn-Shiptjenko, Ivan Andersen at Bo Bjerggaard, Gudrun Hasle at Tom Christoffersen, Eva Koch at Martin Asbęk and Jacob Holdt at V1 among others.
On Saturday evening after Art Copenhagen's opening hours, the fair presents a new initiative in collaboration with the art portal Kunsten.nu, Gallery Night. Copenhagen galleries will be open on Saturday night from 7pm until 10pm to welcome visitors with a taste for even more contemporary art after the fair's closing. The Gallery Night events are also open to the general public.
