About

On this page:

O—Overgaden is one of the leading non-profit art institutions in Denmark with an irreverent program of emerging local and international voices in contemporary art, displaying around eight grand-scale exhibitions each year from its position in the heart of Copenhagen. Beyond the major solo shows, O—Overgaden’s program spans a breadth of climactic concerts, populated parlors, performances, book talks, workshop sessions, and film screenings. Established in 1986 and situated by a canal in one of central Copenhagen’s historic neighborhoods, O—Overgaden occupies two large floors of a 19th-century building that used to house a printing workshop.
