Celebrating the 10th edition of CHART we were proud to welcome more than 22.000 visitors at Charlottenborg across the weekend. Alongside strong sales, extensive press coverage and new partnerships and collaborations, CHART 2022 re-enforced the close ties between galleries, cultural institutions, artists, arts professionals, collectors and art enthusiasts from the Nordics and beyond.

Proud to present our first fully gender-balanced fair, we were also breaking ground with our exhibition of site-specific artworks, installed inside the iconic amusement park at Tivoli Gardens.

"An art fair and an amusement park can make for strange bedfellows, but the collaboration between CHART Art Fair and Tivoli Gardens – one of the world’s oldest amusement parks, adjacent to Copenhagen Central Station – proves fruitful"

Returning with full force to our usual programme of live in-person discussions between leading figures from all strands of the contemporary art world, CHART 2022 was host to a varied selection of artist talks including discussions with Yael Bartana, Camilla Engström, Jockum Nordström, Ed Atkins, and Sofia Hultén to name just a few.

Additionally, we were so pleased to host a discussion between Non-Executive Director of frieze and Co-Founder and Trustee of the Gallery Climate Coalition Victoria Siddall, CEO of UBS Europe SE and Head of Wealth Management Europe at UBS, Christl Novakovic, Founder of Andersen’s Claus Andersen and Director of CHART Nanna Hjortenberg alongside a number of other talks focusing around the future of art institutions.

"At CHART in Copenhagen there is a massive focus on community. And on quality."

"CHART was a great place to exhibit – beautiful location and superbly organized, both the fair and the events to complement it. We really appreciated the effort to connect our artists with curators in anticipation of the fair and the public sculpture collaboration at Tivoli. Great opportunities both."
