On 24 June from 00:01 until 23:59, Copenhagen’s six contemporary art institutions open their doors and fill the city with a buzzing programme of free art experiences created by a string of Danish and international performance artists.
Henrik Vibskov’s evocative parade will march through the streets, dancers in zorbs make Monster Chetwynd’s giant eye cry, Arvida Byström invites you along for a date with a sex doll, a canal touring boat takes you on a water-borne performance trip, and the event culminates with an art fest at Refshaleøen.
Art in a Day is an annual public event featuring performance art across the spectrum in the art institutions themselves and at venues across the city – from courtyards and shop fronts to bridges, church towers, and on the water.
- It is free of charge and everyone is welcome – admission to the art institutions is also free.
- Follow the route from art institution to art institution or let yourself be surprised by the performances popping up across the city during the 24-hour period.
