Once again Cph Art Week takes Copenhagen by storm when the fourth annual festival kicks off in late August. Art lovers can look forward to a week of special events, exhibitions, ART BAR and much more.

The city’s exhibition spaces and museums join forces as Cph Art Week  presents ten days of the best of the current art scene in Copenhagen. True to tradition, Cph Art Week will provide Copenhageners, art lovers and culture fans alike with a massive dose of contemporary art served up in unusual and ambitious ways. Museums, galleries, art fairs and exhibition spaces come together to present a diverse range of exhibitions, debates, openings, artist talks, guided tours and many other activities, all under the theme of Open Gestures.

The week kicks off in style on Friday, August 26 with a special edition of SMK Fridays at the National Gallery of Denmark where this year’s Cph Art Week theme Open Gestures will be revealed. The opening day also promises a mecca of contemporary art when several international art fairs open their doors – CHART at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, and CODE and Art Copenhagen at Bella Center with the new Selected & Code Art Fair.

The following nine days are packed with debates, openings, artist talks, guided tours and much more. The week reaches a climax with an alternative take on an art fair—Alt_Cph, which brings together the alternative art scene within Denmark and internationally at the Factory of Art and Design.
