The 76 participating artists in this year’s CHART present a diverse and strong cross section of artistic practices active on the Nordic art scene. The exhibiting artists range from emerging profiles such as Mandy El-Sayegh (UK), Nanna Abell (DK), Sif Itona Westerberg (DK) and Urara Tsuchiya (JP), to more established Ane Graff (NO), Frida Orupabo (NO), Clare Woods (UK) and Nina Beier (DK) and internationally acclaimed Roni Horn (US), Mamma Andersson (SE) and Tacita Dean (UK).

Throughout the CHART weekend we encourage everyone to circulate between galleries and participate in talks and events.



In Copenhagen: Conversation between artists Charlotte Brüel and Tove Storck moderated by Birgitte Anderberg from the National Gallery of Denmark (SMK) at Nils Stærk, talk by gallerist Timothy Person on “Female positions” in the Finish photo art movement “Helsinki School” at Persons Projects, and live printing of artworks by Julie Mehretu at BORCH Editions.

In Helsinki: Curator-lead tour between all the participating galleries, and a conversation between emerging artist Essi Koukkanen and gallerist Hanna Huiti at Galerie Anhava.

In Oslo: A first ever collaborative performance by Apichaya Wanthiang and Anna Daniell at Galleri Brandstrup.

Reykjavík: i8 Gallery, Hverfisgallerí and BERG Contemporary present a collective exhibition in the gallery space of BERG Contemporary. Among the exhibitors is Icelandic pioneer in video art Steina.

In Stockholm: Artist Anastasia Ax performs at Gallery Steinsland Berliner, painter Sigrid Sandström talks at Cecilia Hillström Gallery and gallerist Magnus Karlsson offers a guided tour of the gallery exhibition presenting works by Johanne Karlsson, Lisa Jonassen and Anna Bjerger.

To follow local capacity restrictions all events require sign-up.
