The vibrant and multifaceted Danish art scene is once again coming together to present all the best from the national and international contemporary scene. With two fairs and a 10-day art week, Copenhagen will be buzzing with activities in the name of art.

Copenhagen Art Week
29 August–7 September 2014

The Danish online magazine is behind the new collaboration between 55 art spaces from in and around Copenhagen.

Copenhagen Art Week connects and calls attention to the bubbling and diverse Copenhagen contemporary art scene, embracing museums, art centers, galleries, art fairs and project spaces. The objective is to affirm Copenhagen as a metropolis for high-quality contemporary art, accommodating both mainstream and narrow artistic activities and, in an interesting way, to open up the whole scene to a wide audience.
Salon conversations, performances, guided tours, artist talks and a gallery night will, along with already scheduled activities at the various exhibition spaces, generate engaging meetings between the public, art professionals and artists and offer an insight into the undertakings of the art world.

Alt_Cph 14: Assemble
5–7 September 2014 (party: Saturday 6 September, 10pm–2am)

Under the theme of Assemble, the artists at Alt_Cph14 will present bio-art labs, hacker spaces, new media projects, and much more. Further, artist Andy Gracie will give a talk on making fruit flies able to survive on one of Saturn’s moons. There will also be a conference focusing on interdisciplinary and collective work practices in art. One of the participants is Alex Adriaansens, Director of V2_, the Institute for the Unstable Media in the Netherlands. Alt_Cph14 is organized by FABRIKKEN / The Factory of Art and Design, Copenhagen Art Week and the IT University of Copenhagen. The fair is supported by The City of Copenhagen, The Danish Agency for Culture and Områdeløft. Join us, meet the artists, and experience technology and science in a completely different way!

Alt_Cph is Copenhagen’s alternative art fair. Each year the 1,000-square-meter production and exhibition space becomes a vibrant meeting place for experimental artist-run spaces and initiatives.. Alt_Cph 14 Assemble takes place at FABRIKKEN / The Factory of Art and Design, a production and resource center in Copenhagen, where professional artists and designers work in 53 studios and the cathedral-like factory hall.
