KP is delighted to finally be able to declare KP20, SPRING20 and KP21-digital as open.
The situation is slightly different with relation to KP20 and SPRING20 in Kunsthal Aarhus, which are still subject to the current Covid-19 restrictions and therefore will first open on Wednesday 21 April.
The exhibition period is 21-29 April. Open every day at 11-19 including Monday 26 April. Corona passes are required to enter Kunsthal Aarhus.

Although both KP20 and SPRING20 are now installed in Kunsthal Aarhus, we have not had sufficient time to document the exhibition in its entirety, unfortunately. However we will continue to publish images/sounds and excerpts from the exhibition, until such time as it is possible to experience it in real life.
For the moment, both catalogues are available here
It is of course regrettable that we are unable to meet up in person in Kunsthal Aarhus today, but we have nonetheless asked KP board member Pernille Lærke Andersen and treasurer for KP Ole C Hansen to provide a brief welcome speech for the occasion; sadly this is as close to a live situation as we can get, at this time.
