New collaboration with
On January 18 Kunsthal Charlottenborg launches a new collaboration with the internationally recognized art magazine Frieze about screening of videos produced by the magazine. The videos presented are specially selected for Kunsthal Charlottenborg by Frieze Magazine's editor for Scandinavia.
As one of the first projects presented in Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s newly built cinema, the kunsthal will be presenting art videos produced by the trendsetting English art magazine Frieze from the middle of January. Associate editor at Frieze, Paul Clinton, has put together a thematic selection of videos linked to Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s exhibition programme. Paul Clinton will be present at the programme launch, which will take place on Wednesday January 18 at Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s cinema.
Paul Clinton states about the collaboration between Frieze and Kunsthal Charlottenborg:
“Frieze Video was set up to share the best of contemporary art and culture as well as experimenting with new ways of taking art criticism from page to screen. Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s status as a space for innovation and the exploration of ideas through art, and its close ties with the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts make it the ideal venue for this collaboration and we are delighted to be working together on this project.”
Further programme details will be revealed in January, but among the videos on display will be Soft Floor, Hard Film by artist and film maker Matthew Noel-Tod, There Goes the Neighbourhood by critic Jonathan P. Watts and On essays, identities and Stuart Hall by the prize winning artist and film maker John Akomfrah.
