KIRK Gallery features international contemporary art, showcasing the latest currents within the new contemporary art scene in a line-up that bridges the gap between fine art and urban contemporary. The artists are all selected based upon this vision and their unique conceptual abilities.
The gallery also contributes to beautifying the local area with the 'Out in the Open' mural project.
Launched in 2014, the gallery aims to bring art out in the open and into the streets, adding beautiful art to the everyday lives of all citizens and not just to the few visiting the gallery. The project breaks away from a museum setting and makes street art of the highest calibre with fine art roots accessible to the public.
For the project, a significant number of large-scale murals by highly esteemed international artists have been added to the cityscape of Aalborg.
Today 'Out in the Open' is a separated nonprofit project.
KIRK Gallery is a gallery with an international reach and a collaborative approach, organising projects and shows for museums and other gallery partners as well as participating in art fairs in Denmark and abroad.
The gallery was founded in 2008 and is run by Lene Kirk and two assistants.
Monthly exhibitions are displayed in the 200 m2 gallery, located downtown Aalborg, Denmark.
