Rooftop Thursdays

/ 29. June 2023
12:00 AM - 3:00 AM

It’s summer in Copenhagen. Join us for delicious drinks and snacks at the Glyptotek’s rooftop terrace.

Bring your friends and enjoy the summer in an informal setting with a supreme view of the Copenhagen skyline.

Curator talk

The Glyptotek has just opened its biggest ever contemporary art venture in a unique three-year collaboration with art center Copenhagen Contemporary. Come along, when curator Anna Kjærsgaard Gregersen gives a talk about the first exhibition in the series ABBAS AKHAVAN – curtain call. The exhibition is based on the Glyptotek’s collections of antiquities from the Middle East.

ABBAS AKHAVAN – curtain call is Akhavan’s first solo exhibition in Scandinavia and can be experienced across Copenhagen Contemporary’s raw industrial halls and Glyptotek’s historic architecture.

*Please note that the talk is in Danish. Anna is available for questions in English after the talk.
