Første Torsdag is a platform for time-limited artistic experiments. Two hours each month we hand over Café Kunsthal or Kunsthal Aarhus’ outdoor areas to a new artist every time.
Første Torsdag is a monthly ‘art bar’, where the art is inevitably influenced by the social context in which it appears. Beige therapy, melting sculptures, live coding, fading flowers and silly walks are just a small selection of what has taken place. The artists usually take the opportunity to try out new performative works or to give new life to an older work.
Let this be your monthly Thursday tradition. Discover the best of the new – cherry-picked for you by Kunsthal Aarhus.
In collaboration with the artist, Café Kunsthal creates a cocktail for the occasion so that the art is not only observed - it can also be consumed.
Første Torsdag is curated by Kunsthal Aarhus' curator Mikkel Elming.
