Nicolai Wallner

Danish gallerist

It’s been business as usual at Nicolai Wallner’s 800 sq metre space in Copenhagen, albeit with a recent programme that has erred on the side of caution, giving not unwelcome turns to local boy Jeppe Hein and American Richard Tuttle, for instance.

Outside the industrial environs of the gallery (a former Carlsberg warehouse), Wallner has been busy engineering a renaissance in the Danish capital’s art scene, with plans for a second kunsthal – offering an alternative to the grandiose architecture of Charlottenborg – slowly maturing.
