Kirsten Kjaers Museum

+45 31654557
Name of Residency: KKmuseum

The residency program is located in a private art museum, with a large collection of drawings and paintings by Kirsten Kj??r (1893-1985).
Side galleries host changing exhibitions of contemporary, national and international artists, also for those using the museum??s workshops. The museum also arranges about 30 classical concerts per year, together with other musical events.
KKM offers flexible studio facilities, creative dialogue, a refreshing amount of open space for artists to work together or individually in a supportive atmosphere.
KKM wants to emphasize discovery and process, as opposed to rules and regulations. We stay as flexible as possible in order to allow enough freedom for expansion. There is a seasonal flow of activity, with the winter being very quiet and the summer vibrant with activity, but you can always expect the unexpected.
Facilities include a graphic print workshop, a bronze foundry, ceramic kilns, welding equipment, open studios, exhibition rooms. Our concert hall is suitable both for concerts (can host 160 persons) and recordings. We have 4 grand pianos spread over the facilities.

Duration of residencies max 3 months. Number of artists resident is up to 10 at a time or we are able to host groups of larger numbers.
