March 13 - May 9


A new vision featuring measures over a three-year period is to ensure the Spring Exhibition a position as the most important adjudicated open art exhibition in northern Europe by 2014. In 2010, the Spring Exhibition has taken the first two important steps towards realising this objective:

• A new, permanent model for the work of the jury and a newly established Jury Prize are to ensure a higher quality in the submitted works of art.
• A new section of the Spring Exhibition in 2010: 24/7 - art created for an online exhibition space, to be presented in cooperation with DR.

Each year over the next three years, the Spring Exhibition will convene a jury comprising five persons. The Scandinavian countries (S, N, DK, FI) will be represented, and it will consists of an equal number of practising artists and profiles with recognised theoretical professional qualifications and/or curatorial experience. The jury will also have a president.

The jury for Spring Exhibition 2010 and 24/7:
Claude Closky (FR), Jury President , Artist and Curator
Cecilia Gelin (SE), Art Historian and Researcher
Johan Holten (DK) , Art Historian and Curator
Børre Sæthre (NO), Artist
Salla Tykkä (FI), Artist

The Jury Prize
A new feature is that the jury will have the task of recommending ten works for the Jury Prize, and of selecting a winner among them. The prize is a recognition of supreme artistic quality and present-day relevance at the exhibition. The prize also includes a sum of money and a statement by the jury. The winner will be presented on the opening evening Thursday, 11 March 9.30pm. The Jury Prize is sponsored by ARTISTOYS.

24/7 - art created for an online exhibition space
24/7 is part of Spring Exhibition 2010 and will be presented in cooperation with DR. The online exhibitionspace will be accessible via the DR media platform and be shown at www.dr.dk/24/7.
The aim of the special exhibition is to show art in its most recent forms in a present-day exhibition space. The same jury adjudicates Spring Exhibition 2010 and 24/7. The accepted works for 24/7 can also be recommended by the jury for the Jury Prize. 24/7 will also be accessible at Kunsthal Charlottenborg during Spring Exhibition 2010.
