The x-room

In the the x-room at the SMK you can experience exhibition projects, that challenge and explore artistic problems.

The x-room is the SMK's experimental venue for contemporary art. Twice a year we invite artists to create exhibitions specifically for the x-rummet venue.

In the x-room you can experience young Danish artists who have not yet staged major exhibitions in Denmark – or international artists whose work has not yet been presented on Danish soil.

We collaborate with artists, who work with current artistic problems. Artists, whose works are helping to define important positions on the international art scene.

You will find the entrance for the x-room in the Sculpture Street.

Mark Leckey: He Thrusts his Fists against the Posts but Still Insists he Sees the Ghosts

British artist Mark Leckey grew up outside Liverpool in England. With the exhibition he invites you to join him in returning to a very distinctive place from his own childhood: the ramps underneath the M53 motorway bridge in Ellesmere Port. For the x-room venue he has recreated the bridge and ramps where he and his friends hung out in the early 1970s.
