A New Director of Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek
The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Board of Directors has appointed Christine Buhl Andersen as Director of the Glyptotek in Copenhagen. Christine Buhl Andersen will take up the post of Museum Director on 1st March 2017 and will thus leave the post of Director of KØS – The Danish Museum of Art in the Public Space.

Karsten Ohrt, Chairman of the Board of Directors:
”In Christine Buhl Andersen the Glyptotek will be gaining a visionary and experienced director who can add extra momentum to the positive development which the museum is currently undergoing. Christine has displayed initiative and innovative thinking, not least in her impressive revitalising of the museum in Køge. She is absolutely the right person to combine a strong academic profile with popular appeal. In other words Christine is the ideal candidate for the Glyptotek and the Board looks forward to a fruitful working relationship.”

Museum Director Christine Buhl Andersen:
”The Glyptotek is a jewel with an absolutely world class art collection and resource of academic knowledge. I cannot imagine a more challenging and responsible task than, together with the museum staff, revealing the riches of the Glyptotek even further to the world and thus continuing the unfolding of Carl Jacobsen’s original vision.”
