About us

Kunsthal Charlottenborg is one of the largest and most beautiful exhibition spaces for contemporary art in Northern Europe. The dutch inspired baroque palace housing the exhibition halls is an addition to the historical Charlottenborg Palace. Since 1883 contemporary art has been presented in the unique exhibition building designed just for that purpose after French example.

The exhibition space presents an ambitious program with international outlook featuring talents as well as established stars from both Denmark and abroad. Kunsthal Charlottenborg presents uncompromising and agenda setting art still understandable for everyone. The trendsetting exhibition program is supplemented with a large number of activities like artist talks, performances, concerts and film screenings.
