Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen

Kunsthal Charlottenborg is an exhibition building in Copenhagen, Denmark. This is the official exhibition gallery of the Royal Danish Academy of Arts.

The Charlottenborg Palace was built in 1672-1683 as the residence of Ulrik Frederik Guldenlove (1638-1704). It was built in the architectural style of the Baroque, which is divided into Holland, England and Denmark. Dowager Queen Charlotte Amalia (1650-1714) bought the palace in 1700, and since then her name remains with him. In 1787, ownership of the palace was transferred to the Danish Royal Academy of Arts.

Cordeballet Logis was rebuilt in front of Kongens Nytorv in 1827 under the project architect Christian Frederick Hansen (1756-1845), and also contains Festhall and Antiksalen Academy. The Kunsthal Charlottenborg is famous for its Spring exhibition Charlottenborg, to which anyone can present their work, which is checked by a jury before they make their choice. The autumn exhibition Efterårsudstilling is held by invitation.
