Afgang (MFA Degree Show) is the annual exhibition for the graduates from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ Schools of Visual Arts. In these months, 28 artists are finishing their 6-year education. The exhibition celebrates and presents new works created by the graduates of The Art Academy. The exhibition is at one time the culmination of their education and an insight into the latest six years working process.
Materials and expressions will vary from artist to artist and this year’s graduate students work with all kinds of styles and modes of expression; from video and painting to sculpture, installation and performance art. Some works are vast in scale; others are delicate, fleeting or porous. Together, they offer insight into the potential future of contemporary Danish art.
The exhibition is presented in the classical setting of the large skylight halls at Kunsthal Charlottenborg – a building that opened in 1883 with the vision of exhibiting the cutting edge of visual arts.
The artists featured are:
Joakim Almroth, Harry Anderson, Lea Anic, Emilie Bausager, Hans F. Beck, Mathilde Bjerre, Camilla Fagerli, Adam Fenton, Maja Fjord Fjord, Gilbert Gordon, Tore Hallas, Ellis Achong Karker, Jeppe Lange, Linda Karin Larsen, Lotte Lind, Mia Line, Isabella Martin, Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl, Lou Mouw, Karen Nhea, Jacob Olsson, Maria Nørholm Ramouk, Benjamin Savi, Rasmus Emil Styrmer, Gianna Surangkanjanajai, Iselin Toubro, Aia Turan, Johanne Cathrine Haugen Østervang.
The exhibition is curated by Katarina Stenbeck & Maria Berrios supported by the Obel Family Foundation and sponsored by Aniso.
