Copenhagen Contemporary is Copenhagen's international art center showing installation art created by world stars and new emerging talents.
Copenhagen Contemporary occupies the magnificent former B&W welding hall offering a total of 7,000 m2 of beautiful industrial halls with plenty of space to show the technical and large formats in which many contemporary artists work: total installations, performance art, and monumental video works. Art that can often be entered and sensed with the whole body.
Since 2016, Copenhagen Contemporary has organised exhibitions featuring, among others, Bruce Nauman, Yoko Ono, Carsten Nicolai, Ragnar Kjartansson, Pierre Huyghe, Bill Viola, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Sarah Sze, Christian Marclay, Anselm Kiefer, SUPERFLEX, and Doug Aitken.
Copenhagen Contemporary is one of Scandinavia's largest exhibition venues for contemporary art and a lively meeting place for a wide audience. Copenhagen Contemporary creates collaborative partnerships and organises events with a number of different partners across cultural genres locally and internationally. You can attend art talks, art walks, concerts, creative workshops for children, visit Copenhagen Contemporary 's own shop offering Scandinavian design, and experience the unique and historical city district of Refshaleøen.
Situated centrally at Refshaleøen in B&W’s iconic welding hall, Copenhagen Contemporary is an international power hub in Copenhagen's new cultural district. The special quality of this area continues to be defined by its industrial history: the area is raw and green with commanding views across Copenhagen Harbour. The district is a mix of first-class gourmet restaurants and small entrepreneurial initiatives; you can go for a dip in the sea, for a sauna, enjoy a glass of wine, and eat grilled food, buy quality bread and visit Copenhagen's most popular food market with stalls from across the world and lounge areas by the water's edge.
