Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2018
Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition is one of the most important open, censored exhibitions in Europe and has been held annually at Charlottenborg since 1857. It originated as an exhibition showing new works by Danish artists, but today includes participants from many countries. Over the years, the exhibition has presented works by great internationally renowned artists such as Alvar Aalto, Per Kirkeby, Olafur Eliasson, Superflex and many others. The exhibition is organised by Charlottenborg Fonden.
The exhibition allows a considerable number of artists to participate in a major international project and has over the years provided the first significant platform for many emerging artists, while also presenting important new pieces by more established figures.
One of Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition’s permanent feature is its independent jury, consisting of artists and art professionals from Scandinavia and countries outside of Scandinavia. Jury members are selected based on their understanding of the artist’s working practices, as well as for their strong international outlook. In 2018, the jury consists of Klara Kristalova (artist, CZ/SE), Alexander Tovborg (artist, DK) Anders Ruhwald (artist, DK/US), Christina Capetillo (architect, DK), and Marie Nipper (curator, DK).
This year’s participating artists are: Alberte Tranberg, Anna-Karin Rasmusson, Anton Bigum Kampe, Emil Krøyer & Mads Sætter-Lassen, Emma Ainala, Galina Dimitrova-Galinsky, HEMULOORDI, Jonathan Houser, Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl, Manuel Canu, Mike Macleod Worning, Mikkel Rundin Ørsted, Ravid Freedman, Regitze Engelsborg Karlsen, Rune Bering, Sarah Vajira Lindström, Sofie Amalie Klougart, Timo Wright samt ART+ (Arkitektur, rum og tid).
As well as selecting the exhibited artworks, the jury nominates three artists for The Solo Award. With the Solo Award follows an invitation to exhibit at Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2018.
