Evening Exhibition Launch
17.00- 23.00 Entrance is free.
Six Danish and six Scottish artists and curators have been part of an artist exchange programme, where they have studied each other’s cities and spaces. This process has led to the creation of new artistic works. Themes such as co-creation, democratic education, gentrification, and strategies towards the creation of creative city spaces are demonstrated in the exhibition. Thus the exhibition reflects upon local history and diversity between the cities. The exhibition launch will also include live music, DJ and bar, open til 11pm.
