ABOUT GL STRAND
GL STRAND is an art center for modern and contemporary art in Copenhagen with an international appeal to artists, visitors, members, and sponsors. Our exhibition program embraces the young Danish art scene, international tendencies, and new compilations of art historical topics.
Every year we present 6-8 exhibitions, an art installation in the Montana Meeting Hall, a varied film program in the art cinema, and an elaborate live event program. With its location in the middle of Copenhagen’s cultural district, a niche bookstore shop and café as well as attractive meeting, events, and conference facilities,
GL STRAND is a house that can accommodate a wide variety of activities.
The history of the art institution dates back to 1825 when a group of citizens and, among others, art professor C.W. Eckersberg founded the Art Association based on the German model. The purpose was to spread a general knowledge of art and to create a link between the elite Academy of Fine Arts and the wider population.
Until the middle of the 20th century, the Art Association had several addresses in the center of Copenhagen. Since 1952, the Art Association has been housed in one of Copenhagen’s most beautiful historic buildings designed by architect Philip de Lange in the 1750s in the street Gammel Strand. In 2004, GL STRAND was added to the art center’s name.
In 2010, GL STRAND underwent a thorough modernization and renovation. A.P. Møller and his wife Chastine McKinney Møller’s Foundation for General Purposes laid the foundation with a generous donation, as did the Augustinus Foundation, the Oticon Foundation, the Knud Højgaard Foundation, and Montana.
Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects were responsible for the renovations and they have enhanced the original characteristics of the listed house as well as provided upgrades to the building suitable for an exhibition space on an international level.
Copenhagen Cultural District
GL STRAND is part of Copenhagen’s Cultural District, which consists of 17 cultural institutions located in the heart of Copenhagen’s historical district. The Cultural District is located in the heart of Copenhagen, and here you can experience the past, present, and future – all within a radius of a 10-minute walk.
