The Spring Exhibition 2017 ready with names of artists

At Kunsthal Charlottenborg, one can experience contributions from 61 of the selected national and internationally established artists and aspiring talents, when the doors open for the annual Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2017 at February 2.

Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition is an open, censored exhibition and has the past 160 years been an annual event at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.
The Spring Exhibition is organized by Charlottenborg Fonden.

The Spring Exhibition 2017 presents artists from around the world: many from Denmark and Northern Europe, as well as artists from other countries such as Japan and the US. The exhibition presents works in the genres of figurative art, architecture and design.

As described by jury member Line Clausen Pedersen in this years catalogue, the art continues to be coveted as a haven for human reflection. Classical art such as drawing, painting and sculpture must give way to the digital and electronic art forms, while the semi-religious and mystical are recurrent themes at this year’s Spring Exhibition.
