Copenhagen, May 15, 2018 -- CHART ART FAIR, the leading Nordic contemporary art fair, will return to The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Kunsthal Charlottenborg

in Copenhagen from 31 August - 2 September 2018. For its 6th edition CHART expands with CHART DESIGN, an additional section of the fair and exhibition platform dedicated to collectible design at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art accompanied by a bespoke programme of architectural installations, talks, performances, art  lms and music.

CHART also appoints new director, Nanna Hjortenberg. “CHART comprises Copenhagen’s strongholds, combining the best of contemporary art, architecture and design. I look forward to continuing to work to maintain CHART’s position as a relevant and inspiring platform for contemporary art, highlighting what the Nordic cultural

scene can contribute to society. CHART will continue to be relevant for professionals, partners and the public, both in Denmark and internationally.” - Nanna Hjortenberg

The 2018 edition of CHART ART FAIR will present the leading Nordic galleries, showing both upcoming and established, as well as local and internationally-recognised artists. The presentations will include many works produced specially for the 2018 edition of the fair, with an increased focus on solo and dual presentations. Notable presentations include: Galleria Heino, a new exhibitor, showing new works by Finland ́s acclaimed photographer and video artist, Elina Brotherus; Galleri Magnus Karlsson presenting new works on paper by Peter Köhler, made speci cally for this year’s edition; and Andersson/Sandström will exhibit large-scale works by Turner Prize-winning British sculptor, Tony Cragg.

CHART has established itself as an international platform for contemporary art in the Nordic region and the fair will present its most ambitious edition so far. In conjunction with the art fair, CHART DESIGN will present an exclusive selection of top design galleries within the Nordic region at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, a short distance from Kunsthal Charlottenborg. 12 galleries from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden will exhibit in the historic rooms of Den Frie, honouring the ‘Skønvirke,’ the Scandinavian tradition of arts and crafts, celebrated by the founders of Den Frie, the  rst artists’ assocation to be founded in Denmark.

Focusing on the cross-section between art and design, exhibiting galleries will present collectible design objects ranging from 20th century modernism to contemporary styles. The 2018 exhibitors range from established, specialised galleries to experimental newcomers - all working within high levels of modern and contemporary design.

CHART builds on the Nordic tradition of collaboration, presenting the invited galleries in unison within the historic halls of Kunsthal Charlottenborg and for the  rst time

at Den Frie. The selection is realised by the fair’s  ve founding galleries based in Copenhagen: Galleri Susanne Ottesen; Galleri Bo Bjerggaard; V1 Gallery; Andersen’s Contemporary; David Risley Gallery; along with CHART Director Nanna Hjortenberg, Deputy Director Isabella Hemmersbach and CHART DESIGN Director Nanna Balslev Strøjer.

CHART SOCIAL is a series of cultural events at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg and across the city that are free of charge and open to the public throughout the duration of the fair. The 2018 CHART SOCIAL programme will explore the crossovers between art, design, architecture, music, performance and gastronomy.

The CHART SOCIAL programme is generously supported by The City of Copenhagen and Nordic Culture Point.

The full CHART SOCIAL programme will be announced end of June 2018.

The CHART Architecture competition, a key element of CHART SOCIAL, was launched in 2014 with the intention of promoting young Nordic architects and exploring the crossover between art, design and architecture. In 2018, CHART is extending the call for applications to young and newly established architectural professionals, as well as students and recent graduates from the Nordic architecture schools.

Five  nalists selected by this years judges will be chosen to design pavilions to house gastronomy partners and SPACE10 during CHART. The winner will be announced on September 1, 2018.

The 2018 concept is OPEN-SOURCE and challenges participants to unfold the potential of open-source content through modular design and cross collaborations, creating a platform for aesthetic experimentation and reusable design. In this collaboration CHART wants to underline the signi cant relationship existing between art and architecture, suggesting participants to design pavilions closely with artists as an integrated part of their team. Collaborations can be presented as initial ideas and then integrated in the further development of the pavilion.

This year the CHART Architecture competition is judged by Bjarke Ingels, Architect and Founder of BIG Bjarke Ingels Group; Beatrice Galilee, Curator of Architecture and Design at The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art; Ben Clement and Sebastian De La Cour (benandsebastian), Artist-duo; Simon Frommenwiler, Architect and Co-Founder of HHF Architects;Thomas Lommeé, Founder and Partner of OpenStructure and Infrastructure; Susanne Ottesen, Owner of Galleri Susanne Ottesen and Co-Founder of CHART.
