Code Art Fair
Around the time fall sets in, something quite special is beginning to stir in Copenhagen: the Code Art Fair.
Hosted under the roof of Bella Center, Scandinavia’s largest exhibition center, film screenings, talks and performance art will fill the four-day program.
Really, there is more to Copenhagen than ‘New Nordic’ cuisine.
Code is an ambitious art fair located in Copenhagen, Denmark – one of the world’s most vibrant and forward-looking capitals. As the only international art fair in Scandinavia, our mission is to discover and showcase some of the best contemporary art, not only from the Nordic region, but from around the world.
Code Art Fair presents leading as well as emerging galleries from all over the world. By gathering the upcoming and the established forces on the art scene under one roof, we invite our visitors to experience contemporary art in a new light. At Code, you will experience a high-profile fair in an informal atmosphere.
The exhibiting galleries are selected by a curatorial team in a mission to exhibit progressive and thought-provoking presentations.
Code also features a curated Film, Talks and Performance Program, tailored to meet and discuss the relevant topics shaping the contemporary art scene as well as our society as a whole.
The fair is located in Bella Center, Scandinavia’s largest exhibition center. The dramatic glass and steel structure and soaring spaces bathed in natural light makes it an ideal venue to experience and engage with contemporary art.
Our ambition is, that what you see at Code today will shape the art scene of tomorrow.
The main section features contemporary art in conceptual presentations and large scale installations. Code brings together leading as well as emerging contemporary art galleries from all over the world, selected by a curatorial committee.
Code Modern represents a special fair section dedicated to modern art – a period in art history that covers the period from the mid 19th century to the late 20th century. At Code 3, this section will focus on CoBrA art, marking the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the avantgarde movement, in which artists from Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam joined forces.
Code in the City
With Code in the City we bring art into the streets of Copenhagen. Our public initiative represents Code Art Fair outside the usual boundaries of the venue, where everyone can experience a day of site-specific performances and special events held at different locations in the heart of the city.
