An Outline Taking Shape to Become a Profile
inaugural group exhibition
DEC 10 2021 – JAN 29 2022
von Bartha, Copenhagen
We are delighted to have opened our new gallery space located in Kridttårnet, an iconic and historical building in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 10th December 2021. With a focus on bringing a comprehensive contemporary programme to both a wider Scandinavian and international audience, von Bartha Copenhagen will continue the gallery’s endeavor of nurturing a new generation of artists, whilst continuing to support the evolving practice of their established artists.
Directed by Mamie Beth Cary, the new gallery opened with an inaugural exhibition titled An Outline Taking Shape to Become a Profile, a group show that incorporates a selection of ten contemporary artists representing von Bartha’s programme including: Anna Dickinson, Athene Galiciadis (who currently has her first solo show at von Bartha, Basel), Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Christian Andersson, Claudia Wieser (who recently presented a major public art project in Brooklyn Bridge Park for the Public Art Fund, New York), Florian Slotawa, Imi Knoebel, Landon Metz (who has an upcoming exhibition at Waddington Custot, London titled Love Songs), Marina Adams and Mike Meiré (who recently had a show at Galerie Gisela Clement in Bonn). The contemporary exhibition explores the concept of ‘a shape’ and the constant shift in how we perceive it, as well as in the context of the gallery itself taking shape and establishing a new profile in Copenhagen. The show features never before seen works including Athene Galiciadis’ Stillleben (Wildlife), 2021 and Lonesome Composition Nr. 2, 2021, Landon Metz’ new work titled MMXXI XXXVII (2021) as well as an entirely new series of Ceramics by Mike Meiré.
During the holidays the gallery will stay closed from December 23, 2021 – January 4th, 2022
