Some of the world’s most acknowledged artists participate in the exhibition It’s Urgent!, which is displayed on advertising panels throughout Denmark during the spring election for the EU Parliament and the Danish Parliament.
It is no coincidence because never has the artists’ voice been more necessary in the political debate then right now, Hans Ulrich Obrist explains:
‘If there was ever a time that the world needed artists, it is now. We need their radical ideas, visions, and perspectives in society’.
The participating artists originate from various places in the world:
Etel Adnan (Lebanon/USA), Sophia Al-Maria (Qatar/USA), Tania Bruguera (Cuba), Tony Cokes (USA), Olafur Eliasson (Denmark), Hans Haacke (Germany), Lauren Halsey (USA), Eileen Myles (USA), Precious Okoyomon (England), Wolfgang Tillmans (Germany), Rirkrit Tiravanija (Argentina/Thailand) and Nora Turato (Croatia).
Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist
The exhibition is organized by Kunsthal Charlottenborg and Heartland Festival.
