FAIR commenced in August 2015 with our first guest artist Carl Palm. Palm was granted a stay in preparation of his work for the Trust exhibition in Copenhagen, where he showed works at Overgaden. Institute for Contemporary Art, and at Kunstforeningen Gl. Strand.
For Trust, Palm published the third edition of the newspaper Good Times and Nocturnal News in collaboration with Lithuanian artist Egle Kulbokaite, which, together with their gigantic ruin-like Styrofoam installation at Overgaden, presented a multitude of texts and works by various artists.
The Trust exhibition was curated by Sonia Dermience and involved the five main art centres in Copenhagen.
The curator chose to rename the five art venues temporarily in order to challenge their usual profiles. As such, Palm exhibited at The Exchange (Overgaden) and at The Studio (Kunstforeningen Gl. Strand).
