THORAVEJ 29, 5 FLOORS, 5 CURATORS
A former industrial building in the northwest district of Copenhagen will provide the setting for a large-scale presentation of Danish and international contemporary art. 17 September – 31 October 2021. Opening hours: Thursday - Sunday 1-6 pm. Free admission.
In 2023, Art Hub Copenhagen will move from its current premises at Halmtorvet in Copenhagen into a newly renovated building at Thoravej 29 in the northwest district of the capital. Before the renovation of the former factory building commences, in collaboration with Bikubenfonden (the owner of the building), Art Hub has given five curators the opportunity to transform each floor into a temporary exhibition space, presenting work by one or more contemporary artists.
The five curators are: Feminist Collective With No Name (FCNN), Institut Funder Bakke, Culture Art Society (CAS), Kristian Vistrup Madsen and Mette Woller.
Works and contributions by the following artists will feature in the exhibition: Jeannette Ehlers, Santiago Mostyn, Nikhill Vettukattil, Jelsen Lee Innocent, Andromeda 8220 v. Aysha Amin, Tolia Astakhishvili, Bamses Billedbog, Karim Boumjimar, Lydia Östberg Diakité, D.N.A., Rochelle Goldberg, Liv Latricia Habel, Mia Edelgart / Sebastian Hedevang, Noah Umur Kanber, Paul McCarthy, Ruby Mariama Laura Andersen Ndoye, Vera Palme, Michala Paludan, Spaghetti Clurb and Young Boy Dancing Group etc.
Further information on the five floors.
IDENTITY, GENDER, BODY AND EXPLORATION OF THE ARCHITECTURAL SPACE
Given that each of the five curators are free to create an exhibition they consider suitable for the premises, there is no single, overriding theme to unite the exhibitions on the five floors. However, the selection of artists and works will feature some common traits, tackling as they do the themes of identity, gender, body and exploration of site-specific art and the architectural space.
The exhibitions at Thoravej 29 will be complemented by a programme introducing the curators, artists and works in various ways. Further information about the programme will be published regularly on this website.
Art Hub works with a number of objectives, the most central of which is to offer up-coming artists and curators facilities and support to develop their practice, among other things by offering a temporary exhibition platform.
