Visit Tinbjerg
An international festival of contemporary art taking place in city spaces. The historic community of Tingbjerg in Bronshøj has garnered negative media attention in the past several years.  This exhibition, which is curated by Mathias Borello and Kenneth Balfelt, places artists in dialogue with community residents and architecture to create a new, positive image of the community. Artists from the US, Germany and Denmark are involved, including the muralist HuskMitNavn, and the US collaborative duo Temporary Services. The curators will give tours of the festival, which is installed throughout the Tingbjerg community, on June 1, 10, and 17 at 15:00. BF
