Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art

Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art is a must see in Copenhagen for anyone interested in art and architecture.

Den Frie is one of the oldest venues for contemporary art in Denmark and one steeped in tradition. It is in itself a unique and very beautiful wooden building drawn by famous artist J.F. Willumsen.

Den Frie was founded by artists in 1898 and from the beginning the artists themselves have been deciding, what was to be shown. Den Frie is the house of the artists and a site for the art of tomorrow.

In 2014 the 100th anniversary of the relocation of Den Frie to its current location at Østerport is celebrated and at the same time the house is being expanded by a whole new level below the building.
