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 an 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.
CHART Art Fair builds on a foundation of collaboration, facilitating a collective presentation of internationally renowned contemporary art galleries. Exhibiting in unison at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, the fair rethinks 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 experienced a new talks format dedicated to the artists’ voice, aimed to encourage relevant in-depth conversations and consider and contemplate new perspectives on art practices today. As artists discussed their practices, processes and methodologies, the audience was invited to join conversations that gave insight into how contemporary artists work. With curators and art writers as moderators, CHART invited both established international artists and younger emerging profiles to broaden these discussions.
CHART Talks was part of our Live programme and was 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: contemporary art centre, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Hosted in an iconic Nordic venue, CHART Art Fair offers a unique experience of the most prominent contemporary art galleries in the region.
