Juxtapose Art Fair is an international biennial in Aarhus, Denmark that celebrates the diversity of the artist-run sector. Juxtapose brings together a wide range of artist-run initiatives – meaning, projects that are led and organized by visual artists and/or independent curators, outside their individual practice. We are interested in all kinds of artist-run initiatives. Examples include artist-run exhibition spaces, artist collectives, independent art publications, online platforms, and other projects that fall outside the walls of museums and commercial galleries. By bringing very different initiatives together in one space, we aim to highlight the unique profile of each project. Juxtapose in centered around a large exhibition in the cultural center Godsbanen. Behind the scenes we offer a series of networking and learning activities for exhibitors.
