Get your summer art buzz at the SMK

Bzzz. SMK is buzzing with art all summer long. Regardless of whether you prefer to draw, creative family fun, royal propaganda from the sixteenth century or contemporary art on a giant scale.

1. Summer experiments at the Children’s Workshop

Throughout the summer holidays the workshops at SMK will be buzzing with creativity and the sounds of construction, crafting, and all sorts of art activities. For example, you can build your own little wunderkammer featuring all sorts of things from familiar and distant shores, draw a portrait or create your own art book. There’s a new theme every week. Weeks 26 to 31 from 11.30 to 16.30. Admission fee: DKK 30 per participant + standard museum admission fee.

3. New sketching room

Two men wrestling, a discus thrower and a huge finger all pose for the visitors in SMK’s new Sketching Room. Everyone is welcome to sit drawn and draw here. The drawing studio is beautifully situated, offering views of the Østre Anlæg park outside, and is full of light and air thanks to the large windows and high ceilings. Drawing boards, paper and pencils are provided for your use. Open Tuesday – Sunday during the museum’s usual opening hours. Free (included in standard museum admission fee).

3. Guided tours this summer

Visitors from abroad may be particularly interested in our guided tours in English: every Sunday, our guides conduct tours in English, covering selected highlights at the museum. This summer we invite visitors on guided tours (in Danish) of our new special exhibitionPictures and Power: The Visual Politics of Christian II. Free. Included in standard museum admission fee.

4. Four special exhibitions – from Christian II to a monumental motorway overpass

SMK offers no less than four special exhibitions this summer. Nordic Highlights shows a selection of the museum’s very best Nordic works of art. Pictures and Power: The Visual Politics of Christian II lets you delve into the history of one of Denmark’s most fascinating kings. In x-rummet you will find a monumental motorway overpass created by the acclaimed British contemporary artist Mark Leckey.

Finally, the exhibition What Lies Unspoken explores Denmark’s past as a colonial ruler with a sound collage featuring contributions from scholars, visual activists and artists.
