Kunstforeningen GL STRAND is a modern art centre in the heart of Copenhagen, housed in one of the city´s beautiful late-baroque townhouses. GL STRAND hosts 6-8 annual exhibitions in addition to a varied program of events related to the changing exhibitions. The exhibitions are aimed at a wide audience and reflect our time, either by offering a contemporary perspective on themes from art history or by presenting the latest international and Danish contemporary art. The interdisciplinary art exhibitions are another characteristic of GL STRAND where visual art enters into dialogue with other disciplines such as fashion, film and design. During the summer of 2018 you can experience the exhibition VOUGE Like a Painting. The exhibition explores the relationship between fashion photography and fine arts through a selection of images from the archives of Vogue magazine. VOGUE Like a Painting is a pleasure trip through various aesthetic expressions, presented in spellbinding large-scale phot

I read about the exhibition home in Norway and was lucky enough to get a hold of it in Copenhagen. Breathtaking show for a Kubrick fan!

My first time at this small museum, but definitely not my last. The Kubrick exhibition filled up all three exhibition floors with scripts, letters, props, etc. Not much new information for Kubrick fans, but still a good experience.

If you like photography, celebrities, fashion, royals, or simply appreciate art, then I would highly recommend a visit here to see the Testino exhibition. Great work. The gallery is a good space and the staff are approachable and friendly.

Great location on the harbor and a short walk from the Metro and the central train station. People were lovely and the lobby bar was a delight. Breakfast was wonderful.

I have had the pleasure of visiting Gl. Strand several times. I have always experienced Gl. Strand as an inspiring and innovative platform, where art is presented in the best way. Definitely worth a visit!

I see a lot of contemporary art so I was disappointed to go all the way to Copenhagen to see an exhibit of New York artists who's work I'd already seen. But it was a good show and most people wouldn't have that experience. The...More
