The annual Spring Exhibition of the artists’ association Den Frie Udstilling (‘The Free Exhibition’) is one of the longest standing and strongest traditions in the Danish art world. The exhibition shows a wide range of artistic practices among the 35 members of the association and their five guests this year, who are A-kassen, Jakob Kolding, Pernille Kapper Williams, Troels Sandegård and Ursula Nistrup.
The exhibiting artists from Den Frie Udstilling are: Bjørn Nørgaard, Elle Klarskov Jørgensen, Elsebeth Jørgensen, Emil Westman Hertz, Finn Reinbothe, Freddie A. Lerche, Hein Heinsen, Henriette Heise, Henrik B. Andersen, Henrik Plenge-Jakobsen, Jytte Høy, Jørgen Michaelsen, Kirsten Lockenwitz, Kristine Kemp, Lars Bent Petersen, Leif Kath, Lis Nogel, Margrete Sørensen, Maria Finn, Martin Erik Andersen, Mikkel Carl, Morten Stræde, Nils Erik Gjerdevik, Per Bak Jensen, Pernille With Madsen, Peter Holst Henckel, Pia Rönicke, Sophia Kalkau, Søren Elgaard, Søren Jensen, Søren Lose, Torben Ebbesen, Ulrik Heltoft and Yvette Brackman.
Instead of a common theme or curatorial concept, the exhibition committee has been guided by the desire to return to the original concept of the annual exhibition, where the principal goal is to exhibit and provide space for individual works and the artistic diversity and scope that characterises the artists’ association.
The members of this year’s exhibition committee are Finn Reinbothe, Lars Bent Petersen and Søren Lose.
