Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2020
The 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 features 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.
The winner in 2019 of the coveted Solo Award, the Iranian artist Samaneh Roghani (born 1984), will participate in the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2020.
