Dymchuk Gallery takes part in Art Copenhagen 2015 –
International Art Fair for Contemporary and Modern Art
From 18 to 20 of September a fair for contemporary and modern art – Art Copenhagen 2016 – will take place in Copenhagen. 44 galleries from France, Denmark, Germany, Italy and other European countries will participate in the art fair this year. It has become a good tradition to introduce contemporary Ukrainian art by Dymchuk Gallery at such international forums.
The art fair is held in the Danish capital for the nineteenth time and previously it had been focused mostly on local galleries. However, the number of visitors and collectors attending the event is growing and, therefore, Art Copenhagen have been cooperating actively with international galleries in the last few years in order to give the viewers the most complete panorama of contemporary art.
