Extract VI
Young Art Prize - CPH 2017


21. January - 05. March 2017

GL STRAND begins the new year with EXTRACT, an art prize exhibition where we present the young rising stars of tomorrow’s art world. Seven talented, newly graduated artists from academies in Beijing, London and Copenhagen. One of them will receive this year’s EXTRACT PRIZE.

EXTRACT presents a choice selection of this year’s graduates, a handpicked group of the most talented graduates from Danish and international art academies, an event that offers a strong platform for young artists. January marks the sixth year that GL STRAND presents the EXTRACT exhibition. To source artists for the exhibition, we have visited graduation exhibitions at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, the Royal College of Art in London and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.

The artists participating in EXTRACT – YOUNG ART PRIZE – CPH 2017 are: Hannah Anbert (DK/ the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts), Rune Bosse (DK/ the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts), Una Gunnarsdóttir (ISL/ the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts), Holly Hendry (UK/RCA), Li Yuanchen (CHN/CAFA), Lotte Nielsen (DK/RCA), Zhang Yunfeng (CHN/CAFA).

EXTRACT SOLO is mounted in collaboration with The Obel Family Foundation, which supports the solo exhibitions, the larger EXTRACT exhibitions and the prize throughout a three-year commitment.
