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 commenced, in collaboration with Bikubenfonden (the owner of the building), Art Hub gave five curators the opportunity to transform each floor into a temporary exhibition space, presenting works by one or more contemporary artists.

The title of the exhibition was straightforward: Thoravej 29. It featured five exhibitions curated by five curators, each of who was allocated one floor, free rein and a budget to create an exhibition of their own choosing. From the dark underground car park to the bright, open upper floor, works by a total of 23 artists  in total revealed the diversity of the artists’ work and expression.

The exhibition was on show from 17 September until 31 October 2021.

Curators: Feminist Collective With No Name (FCNN), Institut Funder Bakke, Culture Art Society (CAS), Kristian Vistrup Madsen and Mette Woller.

Artists: 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.
