This year’s edition will centre on ‘New Voices in the Nordics’, shining a spotlight on the individuals and ideas whose impact is growing within the Nordic art scene today. The programme will highlight artists who are exploring groundbreaking ideas and materials, new galleries that offer a platform for these approaches, institutions that are reflecting on their roles, and collectors who are rethinking what it means to collect contemporary art in our current social climate.


This year’s art fair will bring together 35 exhibitors from across the Nordic region, including a new lineup of galleries including CFHILL and Wilson Saplana Gallery, who will both be exhibiting at CHART for the first time, as well as Andréhn-Schiptjenko, STANDARD (OSLO), and OSL contemporary. Highlights include a large-scale new sculpture by Danish artist Nina Beier co-presented by Croy Nielsen and STANDARD (OSLO) and a presentation of works by Greenlandic artist Inuuteq Storch, who is representing Denmark at the 2024 Biennale di Venezia, alongside works by French artist Sophie Calle at Wilson Saplana Gallery. Andréhn-Schiptjenko will showcase a solo presentation of works by American sculptor Tony Matelli.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of CHART Architecture, CHART will present a new curated selling exhibition, featuring contributions by each of the galleries participating at the fair, showcasing established international names alongside an emerging generation of ‘New Voices in the Nordics’. The exhibition will take place in a purpose built large-scale architectural pavilion, which will be installed in the courtyard for the duration of the fair, conceptualised specifically to propose an alternative to the ‘white cube’ gallery format and responding to the theme of ‘Neo Nordic Architecture’.

The pavilion’s design was selected by an expert jury following an open-call inviting teams of emerging architects to submit proposals for the structure. This year marks the most ambitious CHART Architecture to date, with just one monumental pavilion being constructed. The exhibition will survey the latest developments in the region’s art and architectural scenes, whilst also exploring how architectural space impacts the way we encounter contemporary art. The exhibition symbolises CHART’s commitment towards uniting the worlds of contemporary art and architecture.


Julie Quottrup Silbermann, Director of CHART, says: “We are thrilled to commemorate the 10th anniversary of CHART Architecture this year with our most ambitious brief yet, creating the biggest pavilion to date, that will act as an extended exhibition space at the fair. We wanted to spotlight the important role of architecture in exhibiting contemporary art and how these two practices work together. It’s an exciting milestone that speaks to our ongoing commitment to innovation at the intersection of art and architecture.” / @chart_artfair
