Last night (January 10) Crown Prince Frederik inaugurated the newly renovated Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Nyhavn in Copenhagen. The art museum is the home of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and has been undergoing an extensive restoration. The opening exhibition in the new space will be Danskjävlar - a Swedish Declaration of Love, among other things. The Royal Academy has existed for nearly 250 years and is one of the most renowned institutions of higher learning and all kinds of art research in Denmark. The academy is a home for all disciplines in the creative arts including painting, sculpture, graphics, photography and new art forms including video and so on. It is also active in the theoretical and cultural historical disciplines in fine arts, with new facilities and an extensive collection of fine arts.
