Galleri Nicolai Wallner opened in the Fall of 1993 with a selection of artists that included the majority of our current program. As such, the inauguration of the gallery not only captured the spirit of that particular time but also set the pace and agenda for what we do today.
The gallery works with a diverse group of artists all working in different media. Accordingly, the artists are defined as a group not so much by a shared aesthetic as by a common wish to express a content, tell a story, and set a mark in an otherwise fluctuating world.
Even though the gallery has been built primarily on the ideals of what it means to represent a specific generation of artists over a very long period of time, we have also in several instances shown works by older, more established artists. This has been done not only to contextualize our program but also to introduce the Danish art scene to some of the most seminal artists of the latter half of the 20th century.
