Alexander Tovborg: The Church
June 10–August 6 2023
This summer, Kunsthal Charlottenborg will present Danish artist Alexander Tovborg in his most extensive solo exhibition to date. The entire south wing has been turned into a sacred space, where religious tenets are paired with freeing counter-narratives about faith and superstition, myths and rituals. At the same time, Tovborg’s massive paintings strike a peaceful note, allowing space for reflection while exposing universal themes such as sadness and joy, anxiety and kindness. Simon Friese and Naja Rasmussen curated the exhibition in partnership with Kunsthal Charlottenborg. Further info here.
Kunsthal Charlottenborg Biennale
June 19–July 23, 2023
The Kunsthal Charlottenborg Biennale will travel throughout Denmark in the summer of 2023.
