New Shelter Plan was a contemporary, non-profit exhibition space situated in the old Carlsberg district in Copenhagen. The primary focus was new contemporary art by up-coming as well as established artists working in a wide range of media. The aim was to present exhibitions that we believe challenges the existing Danish art scene.
In our 185m2 unusual exhibition space, we featured solo shows, group shows and collaborative exhibitions as well as shorter events – ‘Shorts’. The program from the beginning to May 2015 was based on open call applications and selected by the advisory board.
New Shelter Plan distinguishes itself from other artist run exhibition spaces in Copenhagen by size and the constellation of an advisory board that curates the program. By the regular advisory board meetings and relatively short exhibition periods New Shelter Plan manifests itself as a vibrant, dynamic and engaging exhibition space able to maintain a flexibility and energy within the program.
