Danish event will show art on the day it is made

Danish-French conceptual artist Thierry Geoffroy announced at the World Biennale Forum in São Paulo in November that he is setting up the Copenhagen Biennial with the curator Tijana Miskovic.

The project will show “ultra-contemporary” art, made on the day it is shown. Geoffroy tells The Art Newspaper. He adds that much of the contemporary art seen at biennials around the world is "staled since it is often years old when the biennial puts it on show”, and that the work in his event, which is planed for 2017, will be much more relevant thanks to its rapid production. Geoffroy suggests that he might take the concept to other biennials around the world” . CBf
