Kunsthal Charlottenborg provides 2017 with topical and socially relevant exhibitions examining society and contemporary art

Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s spring and summer programme includes both artistic talents from home and abroad, established Danish artist, as well as international exhibitions portraying contemporary topical challenges.
Welcome Too Late
March 17 – May 28 / Opening: March 16
When everything from climate to technology is changing at accelerating pace, both artists and documentarists experience arriving too late at the moment they are trying  to capture. The international group exhibition Welcome Too Late is based on the tendency that instead of running after time, attempting to zoom in on the present moment, the movement is now towards zooming out on other and bigger temporalities. Among others, the exhibition presents sculptures, installation and movies by international artists as Iain Ball (1985, UK), Marguerite Humeau (1986, FR), and Katja Novitskova (1984, EE). Welcome Too Late is presented in collaboration with CPH:DOX and is curated by Toke Lykkeberg.
