150 years ago, in 1857, it was decided to establish a self-supporting exhibition committee that was independent of the Academy of Fine Arts and that was to be responsible for the annual Spring Exhibition at Charlottenborg. This marked the beginning of the institution now called Charlottenborg Fonden. Ever since 1857, the Fund has been responsible for the Spring Exhibition, and since 1900 for the Charlottenborg Autumn Exhibition as well. From the outset, the most important aim of the Fund has been to promote and support art ?especially recent works. Throughout its 150-year existence, Charlottenborg Fonden has regularly changed its organisation and management system, though without deviating from its original values and objective. It is still recent art, architecture and art craft/design that it seeks to promote ?and will continue to do so in the future.
