We regularly present exhibitions and projects that offer a critical evaluation within a global dialogue. We believe in art as a profound and competent media for social and political discourse. The gallery aspires to serve as a platform for art that interacts with the surrounding society. We create a venue for dialogue, bridge building between cultures and widen up the perspective for new impressions.
LKB/G was founded in 2016 by Lars Kristian Bode. We believe that culture and art can create change and are important drivers of our society. The aim is to open the eyes to previously underrepresented positions. The first exhibition in the gallery took place in May 2017.
LKB/G’s activities will be embedded in a larger concept which will also include artist residencies, art and cultural exchanges, arts promotion and art education programmes in collaboration with artists on-site. The activities concept will be split in a commercial and a non-profit part.
