Kunsthal Charlottenborg and The Schools of Visual Arts brought closer together
With the new initiative ’Charlottenborg Art’ The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Kunsthal Charlottenborg wish to strengthen the relationship and collaboration between the place of education and the exhibition space.
A multifarious collaboration
Charlottenborg Art is the overall name of a number of activities organised in collaboration between The Schools of Visual Arts and the exhibition space. Some activities have already been launched, while others are in the melting pot and will be realised during 2017. The Schools of Visual Arts and Kunsthal Charlottenborg merged in 2012, and therefore Charlottenborg Art is supposed to establish a stronger collaboration and a stronger common visual identity between the two institutions as one cultural institution. The initiative Charlottenborg Art consists of:
- Charlottenborg Art Talks
- Charlottenborg Art Books
- Charlottenborg Art Cinema
- Charlottenborg Art Research
- Charlottenborg Art Afgang
- Charlottenborg Art Club
Increased professionalism and overall communication
Charlottenborg Art is supposed to be the catalyst for the collaboration between The Schools of Visual Arts and Kunsthal Charlottenborg. The purpose of the initiative is to create a space of possibilities for the many resources of the institution for the employees as well as the students.
Sanne Kofod, rector of The Schools of Visual Arts, states: “Charlottenborg Art is the result of our wish to bring The Schools of Visual Arts and Kunsthal Charlottenborg closer together professionally and communicatively, so the synergy, that was the starting point of the merge, can blossom. With Charlottenborg Art we have created a common platform that brings the academic breadth of the entire institution into play. In this way, educators, curators, and students will contribute professionally to the different areas of focus of Charlottenborg Art’s”.
