CHART launches its de-centered program of exhibitions, talks and events taking place in each participating gallery marking the eighth edition of the annual Nordic event for contemporary art.

Adapting to a changed reality in light of the global pandemic, CHART moves from its home venue of Charlottenborg in Copenhagen into 28 of the leading art galleries representing 76 artists across the Nordic capitals; Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo, Reykjavík, and Stockholm. Each gallery presents their CHART exhibitions and hosts talks and events in their own gallery spaces.

In a strong collective statement, all participating galleries are showing 100% women artists to highlight the structural challenge of gender imbalance in the art industry. With no significant change to this challenge over the past years, CHART dedicates this year’s edition to push for a better-balanced art market.

CHART is the leading event for contemporary art and design in the Nordic region. Based in Copenhagen, CHART is committed to exploring new frontiers in art and design and celebrating artistic practices as an important reservoir for rethinking society and connecting individuals.

Since its foundation in 2013 by Galleri Susanne Ottesen, Andersen’s, Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, David Risley Gallery and V1 Gallery, CHART has strived to challenge the boundaries and experience of a traditional art event. By bringing together the entire ecosystem of the art world, from young talents, professionals and institutions, to established galleries and artists, CHART encourages collaborations and fosters new relationships.
