ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
Chart Art Fair + Code 2
Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2017 / Copenhagen

Chart Art Fair, the leading Nordic contemporary art fair, returns to The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen. For its 5th edition CHART will bring an expanded network of the most prominent Nordic art galleries accompanied by a bespoke programme of talks, events and architectural installations.

Chart Art Fair was established in 2013 by Gallery Susanne Ottesen, Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, V1 Gallery, Andersen’s Contemporary, and David Risley Gallery, with the aim to challenge the boundaries and experience of a traditional art fair. The ambition was and remains to further develop the impact and role of a Nordic art event on the international art and cultural scene. Over 18,000 people visited Chart 2016, making it the most popular edition yet. While the attendance of collectors and institutions from the Nordic region was once again strong, the presence of new collectors attending the fair for the first time from territories including China, Ecuador, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, UK and USA reinforces Chart as the leading contemporary art fair in the Nordic region with strong international appeal.
