Gudrun Hasle's Untitled (I Have to Be Perfect)
In 1948, artists formed the European Avant-Garde coalition COBRA (Copenhagen, Brussels, Amsterdam) in response to a growing sense of disconnection from the art world beyond their own county's borders. But since then, with the rise of new experimental spaces like Copenhagen Contemporary designed specially for large-scale installations, an outburst of galleries in the meatpacking district, and new fairs such as CHART and CODE that sprang up in 2016, Copenhagen has become a thriving center for contemporary art—both locally and internationally. And oddly enough, previously conservative institutions like the Royal Danish Academy of Fine arts have played a pivotal role in supporting young vanguard artists both locally and working abroad since the '80s. Here are some local Copenhagen-based artists to know before your next visit to the city.
