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.

Chart Design

Launched in 2016, Chart Design will this year present a curated programme entitled What it Is, When it Is Not. The program, with Nanna Balslev Strøjer as new Director of Chart Design, consists of a series of talks, performative lectures and projects in public spaces, focusing on the discipline of design is ambiguous nature.

What it Is, When it Is Not will serve as a prelude to the expansion of Chart Design in 2018, where the fair will be re-launched outside of Kunsthal Charlottenborg walls.

Chart Social

Also running alongside the main fair is Chart Social, a program of cultural events exploring the crossover between art, design, architecture, music, performance, and gastronomy. Chart Social, which is free and open to the public, will take place at Kunsthal Charlottenborg and various other locations around the city leading up to and during the fair.
