Flæsketorvet 69 – 71 1711 Copenhagen V Denmark CVR, 32471838/ 4533.310.321 / v1gallery.com
Founded in 2002, V1 is primarily interested in the nuanced relationship between art and the society it exists within, and the complex discourse between aesthetics and politics. As such, V1 is unafraid of taking risks: the first Scandinavian gallery to exhibit Banksy’s work, it has a distinctly underground, experimental vibe, and prides itself on discovering new talents. From Danish artist Kasper Sonne’s transformative geometric structures and their deeply ingrained sense of conceptual aesthetic, to the provocative Toot Toot Tootsie Goodbye, a group exhibition addressing the traces of Nazi ideology in contemporary society, V1 is the place to explore medium, form and message. Open: Mon - Sat 10am-7pm; Sun 12pm to 6pm.

Even though the gallery has primarily been built on the ideals of what it means to represent a specific generation of artists over a very long period of time, Nicolai Wallner has also in several instances shown works by older, more established artists.
