CHART 2023

Join us as we invite collectors, art professionals, enthusiasts and collaborators for the 11th edition of CHART, taking place 25 – 27 August, with a preview on 24 August, at Charlottenborg in the heart of Copenhagen.

CHART 2O23 Participating Galleries

Each year, we present an art fair with the leading galleries in the region, alongside younger galleries with more emerging programmes, an art book fair, a vast live programme of talks, performances, films and music, a site-specific sculptural exhibition in the iconic amusement park Tivoli Gardens, as well as ongoing editorial releases. Building on Copenhagen’s strongholds of art, design, and architecture we explore artistic crossovers and bring the arts community together in all its diversity.

Uniting the Nordic art scene and providing a platform for the very best of contemporary art in the region, we are proud to present a full list of galleries that will be joining us at Charlottenborg this August

A new initiative for first-time collectors

CHART 2023 will have a specific focus on opening up the discussion surrounding collecting art. We want to make the purchasing process more transparent and encourage new collectors to participate, at all levels.

As part of this focus, we are proud to announce a new curated exhibition that will take place in the foyer at Charlottenborg during this year's fair. Entitled 'Start Collecting with CHART,' the exhibition will feature contributions by established international names and emerging artists alike. Each of the galleries at CHART 2023 has been invited to select a work by one artist from their programme. The works included in the exhibition will all be for sale through the galleries and will be priced under 20.000 DKK / 2700 EUR.

If you are interested to start purchasing art, this is the perfect place to begin your collecting journey!

CHART in Tivoli

CHART in Tivoli presents a fresh perspective on traditional exhibition formats. By placing artworks in the context of the historic amusement park Tivoli Gardens, the project offers a new opportunity to broaden the audience for contemporary art.

For the first edition of our collaboration, we produced a unique exhibition with 15 leading contemporary artists. Each artist’s work was integrated into the landscape of the park, creating a new context for the works as well as for many of Tivoli’s most iconic sites.

Following last year's accomplishments, we are excited to announce a 3 year extension to the collaboration. Get ready for the return of CHART in Tivoli this August with a brand new exhibition of site-specific artworks.

"Tivoli has a long tradition of integrating art into the gardens and we are happy to extend our collaboration with CHART so our guests can experience excellent contemporary art in Tivoli's unique setting.”

Director of Culture at Tivoli

Selected as finalist for CHART Architecture 2023

"The new generation of architects are being formed by a world in economic, social and ecological turmoil. In spite of this I see a lot of optimism in the way they approach their role, challenging conventional thinking and pushing the industry in a more collective and collaborative direction"
