30 Aug – 1 Sep
CHART Art Fair is the leading contemporary art fair in the Nordics, located at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in the heart of Copenhagen. The fair presents visitors with an exclusive collective presentation of the best galleries in the Nordic art scene. In providing audiences with a single entry point to the Nordic gallery scene, CHART creates a rare opportunity to experience the highest quality contemporary art in the Nordic region today.
Since its foundation in 2013, CHART Art Fair has established itself as the most prominent international platform for contemporary art galleries from across the Nordic region. Uniting tradition and innovation, CHART Art Fair challenges the boundaries between fair and exhibition and creates a unique framework that continuously strives to explore new experiences within art fair practices. CHART Art Fair rests and builds upon a foundation of collaboration, facilitating a collective presentation of internationally renowned contemporary art galleries. Exhibiting in unison at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, the fair aims to rethink the traditional art fair format by inviting collectors and visitors to experience a contemporary art fair in a setting that resembles an exhibition.
In 2019, visitors to CHART can experience a new talks format dedicated to the artists’ voice. It’s aim is to encourage relevant in-depth conversations and provide a space for contemplation to consider new perspectives on art practices today. In each of the talks the audience is invited to join a conversation that gives insight into how contemporary artists work, as they discuss their practices, processes and methodologies. With curators and art writers as moderators, CHART has invited both established international artists and younger emerging profiles to broaden these discussions.
CHART Talks is part of our public programme and is free and open to all.
CHART Art Fair takes place in the historic architecture of Charlottenborg, which for the rest of the year houses two grand institutions of contemporary art practice: Kunsthal Charlottenborg, a contemporary art centre and The Royal Danish Academy of Arts. CHART makes its home under the high ceilings and fills out the buildings’ iconic halls over three days. CHART Art Fair hosted at an iconic Nordic venue, offers a unique experience of the most prominent contemporary art galleries in the region.
