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.
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 og Young Boy Dancing Group etc.
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 in our calendar.
In cooperation with Bikubenfonden.
This is a Meat City
September 28 – October 10, 2021
Enjoy an artistic voyage in Kødbyen, Copenhagen’s former meatpacking district, where nine artists will be exhibiting their work in nine different commercial premises. Works will be exhibited on shelves, tables or empty corners in the various locations, creating small surprises when you go shopping, dining or just for a stroll in the area.
The exhibition presents works by a young, talented artists from both Denmark and abroad in the context of Art Hub’s local neighbourhood.
The nine artists featured in this extraordinary exhibition include Kasper Hesselbjerg, Mia Edelgart and Steffen Jørgensen, all of who have had residencies at Art Hub. The other six are Gro Sarauw, Adam Khalil and Thuy-Han Nguyen-Chi, currently in residence at Art Hub, and Linda Lamignan, Marie Munk and Jens Settergren, currently taking part in the Bikubenfonden Residency-to-go programme.
For Art Hub the exhibition is an experiment showing art in new settings and by doing that directing attention to the potential of art.
All you have to do to enjoy the exhibition is to explore Kødbyen. But Art Hub can also provide you with information about the various exhibition venues. (Available Monday to Friday between 10.00 am and 3.00 pm).
Further information on the companies involved and opening hours will follow shortly.
The exhibition can be experienced from September 28, as part of Art Week Copenhagen.
