Opening: Gudrun Hasle og Sol Calero
Join us on October 10, when Copenhagen Contemporary presents two new major exhibitions and invite you to join us for the opening day with an Artist Talk and clay workshops – of course with due respect to the COVID-19 restrictions.
NOTE: All activities require pre-registration. However, a smaller number of tickets will be available on the day.
Hall 4 will be transformed into an interactive workshop when Venezuelan Sol Calero’s exhibition El barco de barro (The Clay Ship) takes over CC. The exhibition revolves around topics such as migration and globalization and with clay as a central theme, you can try your hand at shaping, firing and glazing your own ceramic object, which will become part of the exhibition. It all takes place in the middle of Sol Calero’s impressive and colorful pavilions.
In hall 5, Danish artist Gudrun Hasle’s Im hideng indart the ligt opens. It presents a large selection of the artist’s embroideries and a dream artwork created by CC’s guests in the months leading up the opening. The exhibiton consists, among other things, of body-shaped embroideries in real-life size, onto which Hasle has embroidered her own experiences with the body. With a humble vulnerability, she portrays taboos and the unspoken, and with needle and thread she captures the fragility of humankind.
Artist Talk with Gudrun Hasle
At 14.00-15.00 Gudrun Hasle will tell us about the creation of her exhibition in conversation with senior curator Janna Lund. Hasle will talk about some of the exhibition’s themes and her own considerations about the body as artistic material.
The talk is in Danish.

Clay workshop in the exhibition El barco de barro (The Clay Ship) by Sol Calero
Sol Calero invites you inside a workshop community that has clay as its center point. Here you get the chance to be part of all phases, as the clay is shaped, dried, annealed, glazed, fired and finally placed as part of the exhibition.
Everyone can participate in the free workshop, which lasts 45 min. All you have to do is sign up here in advance. This ensures that we can keep a safe distance between our guests and comply with the authorities’ guidelines in connection with COVID-19.
