For the 164th time, the Charlottenborg Foundation is accepting submissions from 30 November - 21 December 2020 for the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2021. This year, the jury is comprised of both collective and individual practitioners, all of whose careers are as significant as they are remarkable, on both a national and international scale.
From 30 November – 21 December 2020 artists - regardless of background, education and nationality - can submit works to the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2021. The Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition is one of the most important open submission exhibitions in Northern Europe, and has been held annually at Charlottenborg in Copenhagen since 1857. Today, the exhibition showcases international visual art, architecture and design.
In 2021, the jury consists of visual artist Nina Beier, visual artist Marie Lund, architect Martin Marker, artisan Iben Høj and the artist group A Kassen. This year's jury has been chosen on the basis of their solid national and international experience as well as their strong global outlook. In addition, this year's jury demonstrates a diversity of work practices and forms of organization, which form a broad-ranging basis for the exhibition's censorship.
REINTRODUCTION OF PHYSICAL CENSORSHIP
The Charlottenborg Foundation has decided to reintroduce physical censorship in the third, crucial censorship round to give the jury better insight into the works applied for. The decision was taken in response to the desire to ensure the quality level of the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition. The exhibition's first two rounds of censorship will continue to take place digitally.
Solo Award and TALENT Award
The spring exhibition's solo award rewards overall artistic quality and at the same time relevance and is presented to the winner on opening night. With the Solo Prize comes an invitation to a solo exhibition in 2022 and 15,000 DKK for the realization of the project. The talent prize goes to an artist who in his practice exhibits both an experimental approach and possesses an interesting development potential for the jury. The winner of the Talent Prize will be honored with DKK 10,000.
