Autumn Holidays: Families in Art

Inspired by the exhibition Gillian Wearing – Family Stories, SMK focuses on families throughout the school’s autumn holidays. We look forward to seeing you for family dance sessions, creative workshops and a cosy family dinner.

Gillian Wearing – Family Stories

In a range of video works, photographs and sculptures, British artist Gillian Wearing tells us poignant as well as unpleasant stories about families and the relationships we might see between different members of the same family – for example between mother and child.

Children's Workshop: Families and communities

Every day of the holidays you can build sculptures, paint, create collages and express your own creative takes on what a family might look like. Price: DKK 30 plus standard admission fee.


Culture Night: Family Stories

The museum’s Stage is transformed into a giant dance floor complete with coloured light and mirror balls. Take your mother, brother, aunt or cousin with you as we invite everyone to a family dance session.

The Culture Night also features art talks aimed at children, drawing workshops focusing on family portraits, and a cosy family dinner of kid-friendly food served at long tables. Culture Pass required.


Open all week at KAS

The otherwise closed Royal Cast Collection is open all week 11-17. 
Experience the several thousands of cast sculptures in the old warehouse at Toldbodgade 40.


Draw a real family

At SMK Wednesday 18. october you can learn how to draw a real life family, posing right in front of you. You can join the drawing workshop at any time from 17.00-20.00 at the Stage. We will provide all necessary equipment. No previous experience or registration needed.


Family  food in the café

To celebrate the autumn holidays the café serves particularly family-friendly food. For example we offer a delicious Spaghetti Bolognese or chicken nuggets with chips to please the palates of our young art fans.


Practical information

This year’s autumn holidays run from Saturday 14 to Sunday 22 October. Don’t forget that the museum is open on Monday 16 October.
