Contemporary art gallery showing the future trends and directions of the international art scene. The Gl Strand Art Gallery in Copenhagen has had a solid reputation for ground-breaking exhibitions of Danish and international art for the past 180 years.

The gallery focuses on predicting future trends and offers a new perspective on modern contemporary art. This innovative approach was originally employed by Eckersberg, who, in 1825, founded the art society with the intention of provoking a debate and setting a new agenda for cultural politics.

Gl Strand is chiefly concerned with exhibiting and representing artists and their works at the six to eight annual exhibitions and has an unshakeable determination to provide up-coming artists with a platform.

The gallery has been graced with visits by many artistic heavyweights including Per Kirkeby, Lars von Trier, Tony Oursler, and Olafur Eliasson.
