Join us for a special summer edition of SMK Fridays in the Royal Cast Collection on the Copenhagen harbour front. Relax with a drink, take an art-themed harbour cruise, and experience a performance workout.

In co-operation with Copenhagen Art Week, the SMK invites everyone to join us for a special summer edition of SMK Fridays at the Royal Cast Collection.

Located at the West India Warehouse on the Copenhagen harbour front at 40 Toldbodgade, the Royal Cast Collection is part of the SMK. It is home to thousands of plaster casts of the most famous sculptures from the history of Western art.

Art-themed harbour cruise

Enjoy this chance to get a different kind of harbour cruise: this evening the cruise boats have been taken over by three artists.

US artist Will Owen presents a collective sound and performance work, Jenny Gräf Sheppard will use the water to produce, in collaboration with cruise participants, a ‘new series of scents’ as part of the work Channel Mist.

The Danish artist Claus Haxholms will present a new performance work called Game Fuel: Overlap & Displacement. The boats will run a regular shuttle service all night between the Royal Cast Collection and the Chart Art Fair at Charlottenborg.

Workout performance by Amalie Smith

You can also catch artist and writer Amalie Smith reading from her book Marble, which includes scenes set at the Royal Cast Collection.

Listen to experts speak about the history of the Royal Cast Collection, and meet five artists who have created new works that relate to the Royal Cast Collection and its history.

The evening’s offerings also include a new performance ( WOD for plaster casts ) by artist Lea Guldditte Hestelunds, which sees her do a workout inspired by the frozen movements of the plaster sculptures.

Three artist DJ's, bar and street food

American artists Jenny Gräf Sheppard and Will Owen and Danish artist Claus Haxholm will take over the speaker system and spin some records. As always, you will find a bar, street food and brief tours.

No admission fees

The event is entirely free, and everyone is welcome. No booking required. 

Please note that this instalment of SMK Fridays takes place at the Royal Cast Collection, which you will find at this address: Vestindisk Pakhus, Toldbodgade 40, 1307 København K.
