Art in a day

24 hours of performance art

24.06.22 - 24.06.22

On 24 June, from 00:01 to 23:59, Copenhagen’s six contemporary art institutions are going to turn the city into a stage for performance art when Art in a Day kicks off with a programme buzzing with free art experiences. 

Join us on an urban art tour through Copenhagen with performances of all kinds taking place in the contemporary art institutions and outside in the city’s spaces – in its streets and backyards, outside the department store Magasin du Nord, in the garden of Restaurant Noma, on bridges, in church towers and on the water.

The star-studded programme features international artists such as Peaches, VALIE EXPORT, Baby Dee, Martin Creed, Tosh Basco, Arvida Byström, and Monster Chetwynd as well as Danish Maja Malou Lyse and Esben Weile Kjær, Sophie Dupont, KasperSophie, Jules Fischer, Jacob Kirkegaard and Henrik Vibskov.

Everyone is welcome and participation is free – just as it’s free to visit the contemporary art institutions.

Follow the route from one contemporary art institution to the next or be surprised by the performances popping up all over the city around the clock.

PERFORMANCES ALONG AN URBAN ART ROUTE
Art in a Day kicks off already on 23 June with the Turner Prize winner Martin Creed’s performance All the Bells in front of GL STRAND in the inner city at 11:22: There the programme will be launched with a large sound work performed by churches in Copenhagen, primary school bells, children’s voices and the city’s own soundscape. 

Just after midnight on 24 June, at 00:01, the 24-hour programme starts in earnest when the internationally renowned musician and visual artist Peaches gives a nocturnal music performance at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art. 

In the morning and in the course of the day you can follow a band of musicians wearing costumes by the designer Henrik Vibskov marching through the streets of Copenhagen – mapping out the route from the performances of one contemporary art institution to the next. As you make your way through the streets and canals of Copenhagen, art performances will be popping up continuously until Art in a Day concludes at Copenhagen Contemporary on Refshaleøen – where Peaches will end this year’s 24-hour performance programme with an awesome after-party.

Please note that the opening times of the six contemporary art institutions are listed on their respective websites and may vary during these 24 hours.

 Art in a Day is created by Copenhagen’s six contemporary art institutions, which have joined forces to create this annual celebration of performance art. Art in a Day moves art into public space, giving everyone a chance to experience star performance artists and new talents during a 24-hour period packed with diverse, extraordinary, and interactive art experiences.

We look forward to seeing you!

Den Frie Udstillingsbygning, Copenhagen Contemporary, Nikolaj Kunsthal, O – Overgaden, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, and Kunstforeningen GL STRAND.
