“We were excited to celebrate our fifth year anniversary and pay tribute to our growing community,
trusted partners and art supporters who have helped us reach this milestone.”
– Julie Leopold, Founder and CEO
The 2023 edition marked Enter Art Fair’s fifth year anniversary and brought the international art world together in a specially-curated celebration from 24 – 27 August. The fair has within five years doubled in size and visitor numbers, and welcomed for its anniversary edition more than 21.000 international visitors at its new venue Lokomotivværkstedet. The expanded indoor and outdoor art spaces gave an authentic experience of the most exciting established and emerging artists working in contemporary art today.
The anniversary edition of Enter Art Fair took place at Lokomotivværkstedet which is one of Copenhagen’s most vibrant cultural event spaces. The 10,000 m2 historic venue was formerly used for maintenance of the Danish locomotives and is known for its industrial architecture and iconic green color. Lokomotivværkstedet is located close to the trendy Meatpacking District and sustainable gastronomic hub Banegaarden.
88 INTERNATIONAL GALLERIES + YOUNG SECTION
The 2023 edition brought together 88 of the world’s leading galleries from 22 countries and 36 cities. Enter Art Fair’s curatorial committee has carefully selected the galleries based on international standards to ensure the highest quality and diverse representation across all disciplines including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, glass, NFT’s, video and more. To support emerging art, a dedicated Young Section will showcase 18 galleries that are five years and younger.
LIVE ART PROGRAM
Curated by Irene Campolmi since its inception in 2019, the Art Program champions artistic expression and emerging artists. The 2023 edition included specially commissioned installations, performances and talks that were accessible to the public free of charge. The Art Program was generously supported by the Danish Art Foundation, Augustinus Fonden and Beckett Foundation.
