Jury and awards
The works in The Spring Exhibition 2015 have been selected by an international jury comprised of artist Emil Westman Hertz (DK), artist Philip Groezinger (DE), designer Ditte Hammerstrøm (DK), architect Carsten Juel-Christiansen (DK) and curator Ikko Yokoyama (JP/SE).
As well as selecting the works, the jury has also nominated ten artists for this year’s jury awards: the national solo award and the international solo award. The winners will be publically announced during speeches on the opening night. The winners of the solo awards are accompanied by an invitation to exhibit in their own room at The Spring Exhibition 2016.
The solo award exhibitions 2015
This year’s solo exhibition have been created by last year’s solo award winners, the Danish-French artist Valérie Collart and the Swedish artist duo Maja Qvarnström and Erik Lagerwall. While Collart shows fascinating monochromatic photographies and sculptures, Qvarnström and Lagerwall have created a mysterious and hyper-real total installation.
Organisation and supporting bodies
This year’s exhibition has been generously supported by Kunsthal Charlottenborg, The Danish Arts Foundation, Knud Højgaards Fond, L.F. Foghts Fond, Augustinus Fonden, 15. Juni Fonden, 71 Nyhavn Hotel, Vinhanen and Pladevennerne.
The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with a survey of all the participating artists, a statement by the jury, as well as a citation for the choice of the jury award winners in The Spring Exhibition 2015.
