About thorupART

thorupART was established in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2005 to bring contemporary art from the African continent to a wide range of exhibition locations in Europe, Asia and Africa. Contemporary African art is vibrant, multi-faceted, full of humour and social commentary.

We want to present great African contemporary art and to support African artists in making an entry onto the international art scene. 

In order to present artists and artwork to a wider audience, thorupART organises exhibition -often touring exhibitions) and publishes exhibition catalogues and art books, which include artists' profiles as well as articles highlighting the issues under debate on African art.

thorupART also carries out skills developement and knowledge building for African artists. Read more about our services.

thorupART is an unconventional art gallery where each exhibition aims to reach out to a new audience by taking place in a new space. A selection of art works can be seen in our Showroom and on the Exhibitions page.
