Overgaden - Institute for Contemporary Art

Established in 1986 by a group of local artists, Overgaden has for more than two decades been among the leading non-profit exhibition spaces for contemporary art in Copenhagen.

Situated by a canal in one of central Copenhagen's most historic neighbourhoods, Overgaden occupies two large floors of a 19th century building where experimental art and diversity in exhibitions are applauded.

You can expect anything from interactive info aesthetics to classical art exhibitions and more.

Overgaden constitutes a vibrant platform for discussion, dissemination and dialogue about art today, and offers a wide variety of events such as artist talks, lectures, discussions, seminars, workshops, film and video viewings. With these initiatives Overgaden seeks to  act as a catalyst and an arena for discussion, dissemination and dialogue about art today.
