Overgaden
Copenhagen

Overgaden annually presents around ten exhibitions of new Danish and international contemporary art and has the solo show as its focal point. With these solo shows, Overgaden produces newly produced contemporary art projects at the highest artistic level crossing media and generations. An important part of Overgaden’s profile also consists of experimenting with exhibition formats and the relationship between artists, art institution, and audience.

Overgaden prioritizes close contact with the art scenes and on a running basis presents a large program of events, talks, and performances in collaboration with art professionals from Denmark and abroad. Equally, it is a central part of Overgaden’s identity to function as a generator for debate and knowledge about contemporary art and its role in society.

Overgaden is an independent institution with a board consisting of Mikkel Bogh (chairman), director of The National Gallery of Denmark, Gitte Ørskou, director of KUNSTEN, Ruth Campau, artist, Mette Winckelmann, artist, Caroline Søeborg Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille, CEO, Ebbe Stub Wittrup, artist, and Jens Lund Mosbek, lawyer, Kromann Reumert.
