Opening: Francis Alÿs


CC invites you to the grand exhibition opening of the autumn!

Experience spectacular video works created by the world-famous artist Francis Alÿs when CC invites you to the opening party for the large-scale exhibition Children’s Games. Join us Thursday 13 October from 15.30, where we celebrate the opening with a speech by Mayor of Culture and Leisure in Copenhagen Mia Nyegaard, free refreshments for the first ones, special guided tours for children, an art talk with the artist and later DJs and live music.

CC is proud to open the first large solo exhibition in Scandinavia by Francis Alÿs. In CC’s two largest halls, a cacophony of more than 30 poetic and political video works created over the past three decades will unfold children’s games from all parts of the world.

This evening there will be free entry, and all exhibitions are open until 21.00. Afterwards, the party continues in CC’s café Connie-Connie.

We look forward to seeing you!
