Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition (“Charlottenborg Forårsudstilling”) is one of the most important open submission exhibitions in Europe, and has been held annually in Copenhagen since 1857. It originated as an exhibition showing new works by Danish artists and now features participants from many countries. Over the years it has included early works by such renowned international figures as Alvar Aalto, Per Kirkeby, Olafur Eliasson, Jasmina Cibic and many others. The exhibition is organised by Charlottenborg Fonden.

Submissions to the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2018 can be made by artists of any nationality and country of residence, aged over 18 years. Submitted artworks may fall into a wide range of genres associated with art, architecture and design—including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, video, film, performance, design, craft, animation, sound and new media. Submissions are made digitally in the period December 4–22, 2017.

The jury of the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition is made up of artists and other art and design professionals from the Nordic countries and beyond. It is intended that the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2018 will include a broad range of competencies from the fields of art, architecture and design, and the jurors have been selected accordingly. In 2018 the jury will be Klara Kristalova (artist, Czech Republic/Sweden), Alexander Tovborg (artist, Denmark) Anders Ruhwald (artist, Denmark/US), Christina Capetillo (architect, Denmark) and Marie Nipper (curator, Denmark).

Jury award
As well as selecting the works, the jury also nominates five artists for one special jury award: The Solo Award. The award recognizes overall artistic quality and present-day relevance, and is granted on the opening day of the exhibition. The Solo Award is accompanied by an invitation to exhibit at the following Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2019.

The exhibition is held at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, one of the largest and most beautiful spaces for contemporary art in Europe, and the dates of the next exhibition are February 1–March 10, 2018. The exhibition allows a considerable number of artists to participate in a major international project and has over the years provided the first significant platform for many emerging artists, while also presenting important new pieces by more established figures.

Charlottenborg Foundation publishes a richly illustrated catalog that includes all exhibiting artists.
