The exhibition TRUST is about the belief in collectivity and trust between people. The exhibition addresses the premises on which art and the art world operate today, as well as focusing on the relationship between the individual artist and the art institution. TRUST is curated by the Belgian curator Sonia Dermience, who as part of her curatorial strategy has given the five art venues temporary names to challenge their usual profiles.

For the duration of the exhibition each of the five art venues has a symbolic name referring to their role and history. Under the name The Palace, Kunsthal Charlottenborg presents works that collect, order and process material from the world around us using aesthetic registers. Nikolaj Kunsthal – Copenhagen Contemporary Art Centre has been given the name The Temple. Here three art collectives will transform the gallery into three large-scale installations exploring different aspects of contemporary forms of worship. The art venue GL STRAND has been given the name The Salon. The exhibition in this former bourgeois home stages the institution’s history as a place for debate and dialogue, incorporating the decorative, aesthetic and challenging in an apparently dysfunctional family framework. Under the name The Exchange, Overgaden Institute of Contemporary Art brings design , video, printed matter and performance together to create an exchange between artistic practices. Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art has been given the name The Studio, and presents installations where the creative process itself is both visible and key to the completed works. As well as the exhibitions in the art venues, there will be small TRUST satellites throughout Copenhagen.

The Belgian graphic art group Überknackig has designed the exhibition’s city map guiding people to the venues and locations participating in TRUST.

With TRUST, Copenhagen’s five main art venues have joined forces to present the city with outstanding and relevant highlights from the Danish and international contemporary art scene right now.

The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, the City of Copenhagen, Pro Helvetia, OCA and Institute Français.
