CC: Art Mornings
Art Week is imminent, and we will celebrate by opening Copenhagen Contemporary long before normal opening hours – on an ordinary weekday!
Combine art and everyday life when Movia, Copenhagen Cooking, and CC invite you for breakfast, art, and a unique visit to the exhibitions before the Art Centre opens to the public. Breakfast is supplied by Jalm&B with butter and cheese from the Thise and Naturmælk dairies, respectively, and we will, in best everyday style, collect it before we set off and enjoy it during the crossing. The crossing aboard the harbour bus is a small break in the day to be warmly recommended. If slow luxury is not exactly your cup of tea, just jump on the 2A bus instead – alas, however, without breakfast. On the screens in both the 2A bus and the harbour bus, you can watch excerpts of video works which can be experienced in full at the exhibition Yet, It Moves! Combined with the sea view, we could not imagine a better way to start off your Wednesday.
Option 1: We meet on the bridge Nyhavnsbroen, receive our breakfast, and catch the harbour bus at 7.41. Continue for three stops and get off at Refshaleøen (remember your travel card or buy a ticket via the DOT app). Continue on foot to CC. It is roughly a ten-minute walk and a fine one at that. It is essential to buy your ticket in advance, as there are a limited number of seats. Buy your ticket here (link).
Option 2: You arrive by bike, car, space hopper, or bus 2A. It is important to arrive at CC at 08.15 promptly. Buy your guided-tour ticket on arrival. Breakfast is not included in option 2.
What to experience at CC?
We currently feature three exhibitions which we look forward to showing you. Our hosts are on standby to tell you about the exhibitions.
Beautiful Repair in which artists and designers combine climate awareness with a fascination of the fundamental human need to express ourselves through the clothes we wear.
Aftershock is an immersive environment created specifically for CC by the American light artist James Turrell. For more than half a century, Turrell has been working with light and space. Formed by an education in perceptual psychology and his Quaker background, a pacifist and Christian religious community believing in an ’inner light’, Turrell began experimenting with light as an artistic medium in the mid-1960s.
Yet, It Moves! is an exhibition and research project exploring movement – above, around, and inside us. Via a broad-based artistic programme, Yet, It Moves! examines movement as a ubiquitous phenomenon and points to many complex patterns of movement involving us all.
If you stay for lunch or need a break, café Connie Connie opens at 8.00 offering a variety of cakes and lunch dishes.
