CC x GLYPTOTEKET: Exhibition Opening Celebration
Join us when CC will open our biggest summer party in collaboration with Glyptoteket. Come celebrate this spectacular new contemporary art adventure.
The Glyptotek and Copenhagen Contemporary (CC) are collaborating to present the first-ever exhibition in Scandinavia devoted to the work of the artist Abbas Akhavan (b. 1977 in Tehran. Lives and works in Montreal). Based on the Glyptotek’s collections of antiquities from the Middle East, Akhavan will create an exhibition that will be presented in both institutions – gracing both the raw industrial halls of CC and the historic architecture of the Glyptotek.
The exhibition will be the first in a series presented jointly by CC and the Glyptotek. The idea is for international contemporary art to shed new light on the cultural heritage of antiquity and its significance today.
Like the exhibition, the celebration takes place at both the Glyptoteket and CC. At the Glyptoteket you can experience Abbas Akhavan in conversation with Anna Gregersen, curator and museum inspector at the Glyptoteket. And at CC there will be opening speeches by the directors and curators of the art institutions, followed by music, cold wine in the sun and party.
Its possibility to see the Glyptotek’s part of the exhibition at 10-21.
